Podcasts won’t kill radio in 2016, but the two will absorb each other and become some new kind of hybrid. My favorite podcasts are so much better than what’s available to me on FM radio, but I need local news and traffic, and there are a couple of CBC shows I don’t want to lose touch with. I want all of that together, plus a stream of music programmed to my taste through a smart system that knows what I’ve heard and what I haven’t, regardless of which device I heard it on. This has already begun and will progress swiftly in 2016. First solution with a user interface simplified to ON/OFF wins.
