Today, self-motivated storytellers build podcasts that can sometimes be measured in millions of followers -- some even have audiences in the tens of millions for their podcast programs. One podcast we discovered recently, has an audience of over 40 million viewers an episode. Back in TV's golden days of shows like "Seinfeld," there were audience numbers like these. Today, few major television series ever equal audiences of this scale. Media is changing fast. Aside from the obvious YouTube and Vimeo distribution outlets, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and many others are helping fuel rapid change. It is far from over.

In our search for the leaders who are building wonderful programming in this exciting new field, we'd like you to join us in a search for the Best of the Web podcasts. We'd like you to introduce us to your favorites. We'll introduce them through our newsletters and other means and let the community at Creative COW vote on the podcasts that merit recognition as the "Best of the Web."

We hope that you will join us as we explore the current state-of-the-art in podcasts elevating the form and the value of the rapidly changing world of “media anywhere” broadcasting.

KURZGESAGT (which in German means "In A Nutshell") is one of the podcasts that we have followed for a few years now. It is available online through YouTube. It is a finely crafted series that explores science in a way that is highly entertaining. If you love the science programming, take the time to get to know Kurzgesagt, it is definitely one of the very best podcasts on the internet today. Kurzgesagt was founded by Philipp Dettmer in 2013. The Munich, Germany-based studio's YouTube channel focuses on producing minimalist animated educational content that discusses scientific, technological, political, philosophical and psychological subjects.
