Yes, podcasting has a porn problem. But by "problem", I mean that it's generally absent from the medium. And that makes it very strange compared to other digital formats 

Here are a few reasons porn never gained much of a foothold in podcasting:

  • Podcasting is audio-centric - Porn is a visual medium
  • Cultivating/sharing content is hard in podcasting - That was central to making sites like Tumblr a huge porn magnet
  • Direct money collecting is cumbersome in podcasting -- Not so in porn

Some of these challenges might be addressed in the coming months/years. Will that make podcasting more susceptible to porn infestation? (And, though unasked in this short episode, is that necessarily a bad thing?
