That's the Washington Post's verdict, anyway, after noting how bits by the Queer Eye Fab Five, Al Franken, and Ted Koppel have already kicked podcasting's pioneers off the iTunes homepage (with the exception of feather-haired founding father Adam Curry). Things will only get worse once corporate radio arrives -- Clear Channel has made it clear that it considers podcasting merely radio by other means. ..." Link: Business 2.0.
