Podcast: The A.V. Club’s Kyle Ryan breaks down the year’s best podcasts

Podcasts are awesome. The only thing better than creating podcasts is listening to them. And the only thing better than that is talking about podcasts with Kyle Ryan, Managing Editor for the A.V. Club. He and his team put together the Podmass Central podcast reviews section over at the A.V. Club and have, of course, created a best podcasts of 2012 list. This is a great conversation about how the medium is maturing, where it’s heading and who is doing fantastic work.

And I’d like to give a special thank you to all our listeners who helped launch the first GigaOM Podcast show this year! We’re going to be even bigger and better in 2013.
