It started with a crawl, but audience demand for podcasts has grown by leaps and bounds in the last few years. iTunes hosts more than half a million podcasts, and you’d almost have to be naive to not investigate - or get involved with - this burgeoning medium. 

Last time I checked, there are only a handful of episodic discussion and interview-style podcasts in the guitar-related zeitgeist for iTunes. Jude Gold, our very own contributing editor, hosts one called No Guitar Is Safe, which has proven to be popular among players. Considering the numerous social media platforms guitarists use to launch their own brands, it seems podcasting is surprisingly overlooked because the potential to become a very big fish in a small pond can easily be nurtured in this forum.

Paul Riario

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
