The whole podcasting movement seems to be over its top. Podcasting had a start in 2004. Several sources mention Audible revolution - Ben Hammersley - The Guardian as the first mention in "mainstream media" and the start of growth of the phenomena.

According to the article about Podcasting in the Dutch wikipedia the peak of hobbyist podcasts was in 2005, and by 2008 most podcasts were (semi-)professional recordings of radio shows. In 2005 I already noticed a lot of the podcasts that were easy on the ears were made by radio professionals. Adam Curry (Daily Source Code, sometimes still available via, but Adam is still very active with other podcasts), Father Roderick (Catholic Insider, still running), Luuk Ikink (Luukspod, not podcasting but active on Dutch radio) other podcasters I listened to back then were all trained in media.

Hobby podcasting is a lot less than in 2005. Sites with podcast listings are inactive, forums are sleeping or more about low-budget radio than specific about podcasting. But some are still alive and kicking!
