“Would competition [from YouTube] make podcasting better for creators? I think it would make it better in some ways and worse in others. On the consumer side, people are very comfortable on YouTube.

But that comes with some advantages as well.” - Headliner’s Neil Mody, talking about YouTube, in last Friday’s Podcast Business Journal.
