Why have podcasts become so popular all of a sudden?

Because listening is very easy and quick than reading 20k word length article in hours. Also while you listening you can do lots of things too. I also believe podcasts a way of finding like-minded individuals who share your interests.

Because watching a 30 min video can easily strain your eyes and with lot of us doing most of our work on laptops, it feels relaxing to just listen while you can rest your eyes.

Its same as why we still listen to songs when we can watch it on youtube.

With TV dying out slowly but surely, there must be some form of news that will fill its place. Podcasts seem to be catching the younger generation and giving them something to educate or entertain themselves with while driving. How podcasts succeed after self-driving cars is anyone’s guess, but it seems likely they will include video in the future.

Because you can stick them on your phone and listen whenever wherever u want, no commercials, you pick the podcast you want about the kinda subjects you like, you can other things while you are listening, can also just be like white noise in the background keep your mind off other things.

Lack of information on critical topics & influencers sharing their journey on specific topics & the wide array of the topics covered in podcasts are some of the main reasons that podcasts are getting popular.

It is convenient! People can listen during their commute and other activities too or while doing some other work.

I think it's because there are so many divergent opinions, about our views in the society.
Then there is the long commutes to work. Podcast are a great way to spend that time.
