Podcasts really aren't either. This is why podcatchers have languished in mediocrity for so long.
I don't use RSS. I just go to the websites I care about. I know when things I like update.*Shrug*
RSS is dying. Outside of nerds, most people don't consciously use it.
they're having some load issues right now, but it seems like the nicest alternative.
I only use RSS for everything. News, webcomics, podcasts, anything that updates irregularly, you name it I probably have an RSS feed for it in my Google Reader. Except for NSFW stuff, I keep that locked in my lobes.
Companies don't bother with products that aren't popular, aren't profitable, or don't appear to have any growth potential.
Do we have any metrics to support "podcasts are dying?" Mine has doubled its audience since August.

Well thanks, but I wasn't fishing. Are there any stats or tracking for the podcast industry as a whole?
let's face it, the early adapters for Glass are mostly gonna be nerds who want their RSS on that thing.
One thing I have noticed is that many of the RSS feeds I read have stopped including the full article.
Some sites have sponsored RSS feeds so the whole argument about not being able to monetize RSS is bullshit. It is actually impossible (short of hosting your own RSS intermediate server a la feedafever) to block RSS ads so you'd think that sites would be all over this shit.
As someone who still uses google listen this saddens me, need to find a new podcast app that does similar things.
