Who doesn't want to get paid for the passion. I get that #podcast people want to make money. I also understand that change is difficult and part of my issue with pay for play podcasts.

However, it just feels so much like the way news and journalism have gone thanks to the ad model of revenue. Podcasts can be entertainment, but designing them to bring in money will affect content.

Furthermore, it will change the landscape of #Podcasting At the moment it is overrun with the ad model. The networks pushing the ad model have brought more polished podcasts with which the pioneers of the #podcast cannot compete with. Ask yourself, would you be interested in watching a fan film me and my friends made in the Star Trek universe over a weekend or an episode of Discovery?
