According to a new CBS News poll, two-thirds of Americans listen to podcasts at least once in a while, including 23% who do so a few times a week.
By comparison, a year ago, a majority of Americans said they never listened to podcasts. Wow! That is a huge jump. The 1930s and '40s, the era of Jack Benny, "The Shadow" and Orson Welles' "War of the Worlds," has been referred to as the Golden Age of Radio. Today, we're living in the Golden Age of Podcasts.
I grew up on radio. My Mom, who was born in 1929, sparked my love for radio. She remembered the golden age of radio and had the clock radio on all day in the kitchen. I’d stay up way too late at night in my bed listening to my radio. Whether it was Sally Jesse Raphael with her Dear Abby format overnight show or Larry King before he got his CNN slot or Art Bell with Coast to Coast AM. I would scan the dial to see what talk stations I could pick up in other states. Lying there in the darkness it was a thrill to hear WLS in Chicago or WCCO in Minneapolis. To the dismay of my parents, I actually left the University of Kansas to work full time on the air at KUDL-FM Radio in Kansas City which kicked off my 9 year stint in radio before I moved to New York City. The intimacy of the conversation with cookbook authors is what I love about what I do. 🎧 You can listen to Cookery by the Book Podcast on your phone as you commute, do errands, cook, or work out.
