Jennifer Miller of The New York Times wrote about the onset of podcasting popularity – a seemingly evergreen theme. Nieman Lab wondered in 2017 if we had hit "top podcast" while Wired believed the same in 2015. Podcasts were "back" in 2012, according to Social Media Examiner and also in 2014, according to Washington Post . 2005 was "podcast wound", according to Skifer . Podcasting works perpetually mainstream and at the same time on the verge of death.

A state she quotes near the end of the play is especially eye opening: less than 20% of podcasts tracked by Blubrry released a new episode between March and May.
No, I don't think this is the top, either
