Paragon Collective – The Frontier of Podcasting

Alex Aldea is the founder of The Paragon Collective podcast network, which produces Ice-T: Final LevelRuPaul: What’s The Tee? With Michelle Visage,and Kingsley’s Overexposed podcast. He responds to Carrie Battan’s recent article, “Podcasts: The Last Refuge of the C-List Celebrity,” in this great article, THE PODCAST IS THE LAST REFUGE FOR NO-ONE (embedded below).

Alex points out that Carrie missed crucial points about the success of podcasting: (1) It is an incredibly powerful form of media, does not insulate artists from scrutiny (as exemplified by Brandi Glanville’s recent scandal), (2) does have viral potential (as exemplified by Ice-T’s Dungeons & Dragons sensation), and (3) has become much more than the loosely based talk show format that the medium has been traditionally known for.
