The Ghost of Podcasts Present

After only a couple years of existence, podcasting is embraced by the Oxford Dictionary, every major media company, Steve Jobs, and The Office creator Ricky Gervais (who now holds the Guinness World Record for the most downloaded podcast). Independent podcast producers such as Grammar Girl, Tikibar TV, Ask a Ninja and RocketBoom are happily sharing space on the iTunes top ten list with huge media conglomerates.
