“Godcasts’ becoming more popular
December 8th, 2005

Podcasting is a huge and growing phenomenon. One reason is religious podcasts, or ‘godcasts.’

‘I would say probably anywhere from 10 percent to 20 percent of the podcasts available online have some dimension of religion or spiritual life to them,’ estimates Lee Ranie of the Pew Internet and American Life Project.

Godcasts are created by houses of worship from every denomination, and from around the world. The wide selection is good news for web worshippers.

That religion and spirituality have found a niche in this new technology should not be a surprise. Nearly two thirds of the nation’s 128 million Internet users have used the Internet for faith-related matters, according to study last year by the Pew Internet & American Life Project.”

N.B. in one of the comments Revered asks me if I can point to a ‘Godcast’ that i know of. To illustrate the variety of podcasts that exists here are some popular tags I found in a Yahoo directory. It shows that religion is an important category, but many other areas are popular as well.
