How are you hearing me: Live on internet radio? On a recorded podcast? Steve Jobs said in 2005: “Podcasting is the next generation of radio and users can now subscribe to more than 3,000 free podcasts and have each new episode automatically delivered over the Internet to their computer and iPod.” By 2018, the iTunes store had 500,000+ podcasts. The world's first internet radio station was launched by Carl Malmud in 1993. The internet’s first live video stream was a performance by garage band Severe Tire Damage in June 1993.
In August 2015, Facebook launched Live. On average, people watch live streams three times longer and comment 10 times more than on regular video.
