New York dominates the podcasting industry, putting it at risk of only broadcasting a narrow viewpoint

The Internet is pushing the journalism industry toward the coasts, making journalism centralized in a few cities including New York City, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles. That’s bad for the podcasting industry, Adam Ragusea writes, because the barrier to entry is now higher. For someone who may not come from a financially privileged background, moving to NYC to make $30,000 a year may not be feasible. That will have a negative effect on podcasting and journalism as a whole, Ragusea writes: “The uniformity of their life experience will result in journalism that reflects a narrow, exclusive view of the world.”
