iTunes Hits 125,000 Podcast Milestone

Sep 5th, 2007 | By | Category: General

Steve Jobs today announced that Apple’s iTunes podcast directory had hit a milestone of 125,000 podcasts. Jobs made the announcement as part of his introduction of the fall iPod line.

“This is amazing material,” said Jobs. “It’s free, and over 25k are video podcasts.”

The announcement is a sign of the continuing strong growth of podcasting and video podcasting. While the iTunes podcast directory only includes a portion of the podcasts that are available, it is a good indicator of both the number of “show” style podcasts and the growth of podcasting in general.

And seeing that Apple has announced that the iTunes podcast directory now contains 125,000 podcasts I will have my work cut out for me to stand out in the crowd but I am up for the task! I’ll keep updating you on my progress as I get closer to the launch. In the words of Kent Dorfman, “this is going to be great!” […]
