Difference Between Apple Podcasts and Stitcher

Podcasts are taking the entertainment industry by storm. But what’s so captivating about a podcast or what’s causing their popularity?

But today, podcasting is all the rage these days and has become the next big thing as we begin to move to a streaming era. Podcasting is no rocket science; in fact, anyone with a digital audio recorder can create one. The other part of the quick success of podcasts comes from the fact that not only are they easy to create, but they are easy to consume too.
