But it did lead me to think about it for a moment. If I did have the proper equipment (whatever that might be) and the time/energy to do so, what sort of content could I possibly put into a 15, 20, 30, or even 60 minute weekly podcast? I purposely don't cover just one literary genre, so there certainly wouldn't be a "theme" for such a thing, unless I called it something like "The Southern Squirrel Revival Show" and featured a regular segment called "Your Moment of Squirrel Zen." Wouldn't reading aloud thoughts on books read be a slightly more frustrating version of an oral book report, minus the transcript for people to read? Or would there be an expectation for "news," which other people might translate as "gossip concerning the filthy hygiene of Canadians"?
What would constitute an interesting podcast that wouldn't have a theme (minus the above-mentioned squirrel possibility)? What elements make these things popular in the first place? Just curious, as I have little desire to start one anytime soon.
