Apple's actual role in podcasting: be careful what you wish for

Marco Arment, a podcaster and a developer of a podcasting iOS app, explains why Apple having a bigger role in podcasting is a bad idea.

Marco’s post explains why this is a terrible idea, and why podcasting is working well without a big player.
