The History of Podcasting is a grassroots organization made up of pioneering podcasters going back to 2004 including the precursors before the new medium took shape. The mission of the History of Podcasting is to tell the true story of the early days of podcasting by the people who made it happen. Most of the newspaper and magazine articles about those days were still focused on print publication, leaving many of the reference articles unavailable or unlinked. The goal of the History of Podcasting project is to set the record straight.
