Podcasting is the fastest growing digital content market in the world, with experts believing it will produce over $1 billion in revenue by 2021. With its perfect blend of entertainment and information, the genre holds huge potential for education and can be richly applied to any learning activity that requires presentation, discussion, interviewing and story-telling.
