History of International Podcast Day
Podcasts have become an essential part of our educational tools and gaining insights on the go, regardless of where you are; all that is needed is a stable connection to the internet.
The discovery or the invention of podcasts can be traced to the year 2000, when Dutch/American DJ, VJ, and media entrepreneur Adam Curry and software developer and entrepreneur Dave Winer, first invented an early version of a podcast. Technically, it was in Dave in 1997 who first described a way to include references to media files in RSS feeds. When mainstream media began to pick up this new audioblogging thing, it went fast, and in February 2004 the word 'podcast' was introduced, and even declared the word of the year in 2005 by the New Oxford American Dictionary.
A decade after the baptism of the word 'podcast', National Podcast Day was instituted and celebrated in 2014.
Due to the tremendous appreciation and growth of podcasts, the rebranding of National Podcast Day was done. Today it is known and celebrated as International Podcast Day, on the 30th of September annually. The celebration is geared towards shining a light on the milestones podcasting has achieved over the years, including their expertise and efforts in disseminating resourceful information.
