In honor of what I hope will be only the first of my appearances on the War Rocket Ajax podcast, I’m taking a look at some of the most historically important podcasts down through the ages.
COBRA's initial recruitment video podcast was very successful. Can YOU look at this and not want to run out and kick G. I. Joe in the face? I can't. Call me weak, but... GO COBRA!
Einstein's "You've Got Legs... USE them!" podcast set fashion trends for decades.
Madame de Pompadour's famous, "Bitch, You Ain't All That" podcast not only swayed public opinion in her war of words with Napoleon, but the podcast also contained Madame P's "Shorty's Short in the Shorts," which many scholars consider the first rap song, and that Oscar Wilde cited as a direct influence on his, "Playwrights Gone Wilde" rap opera.
Though very concise in nature, Julius Caesar's "Et tu, Brute" podcast received over 12 million downloads, the YouTube video went viral, and for decades afterwards many of Rome's finest citizens considered it fashionable to use the podcast as their ringtone.
I’ll work on setting up links to the above podcasts, for those who have missed them, but in the meantime… you can listen to my own podcast, where I talk about the Punisher doing his laundry. I ain’t kidding.
Merely click on my above portrait to be taken to my podcast.
