Since Heinrich Hertz discovered the radio wave in 1886 and radios started making their way into ordinary households in the late 1920s and 30s, our penchant for a good audio yarn has grown into so much more than just listening for entertainment value. We now tune into not only radio, but the ever more popular podcast, which covers every topic under the sun. Gamers especially are tuning into radio shows and podcasts offering the low-down on how to get a competitive advantage in every conceivable game, from online blackjack to Five Card Stud. The best is the way technology has removed the limits – you can get great gambling insights on the device of your choice anywhere, anytime.
Podcasts have outlasted their brick sized namesake, the iPod, which, if you are too young to remember replaced the much-loved Walkman. Released in 1979, this portable cassette player changed listening habits forever as people were able to listen to their own individual music choice whilst on the move. Groovy!
The meteoric rise of the podcast pays tribute to this desire for individuality and proves that our fascination with this incarnation of audio storytelling, on-demand radio shows if you like, has the power to pack some popular culture to you anywhere, anytime.
The fact that audio requires focus andcreates a deep sense of engagement between listener and content, makes it an excellent medium to hold court about your favourite topic. In this case, our appetite for some ‘stay tuned’ content on gambling, which we can effortlessly insert into our busy lives.
