Podcast: And That's Why We Drink

Reading Discussion

  • Spinelli and Dann, Ch03
    • “banners of fandom” from merchandise to live events, podcasts can offer more than a product which I consume – a group with which I identify (43)
    • superfans - how a highly engaged (but minority) listenership must be “validated and energized” (45) whether through “direct strategies” or “essential qualities of the form” (which? both?)
    • paradox of podcast not being “live” and communal as broadcasting, and many big podcasts not explicitly or intentionally engaging via social media
    • “Night Vale … proliferated online because there is something very familiar and very spreadable about its content” (59)
    • “an essential openness to the world fo Night Vale which invites contribution from the listeners … These fan art creations are not just copies …. because the fans have been given nothing to copy…” (63)
