Desde la asistencia del primer oyente a unas JPod en el evento de Murcia en 2009 y con el paso de las ediciones, estas jornadas han recibido un numero creciente de escuchas que comparten espacios, charlas, debates y reflexiones con estos productores mediaticos.
El surgimiento en 2010 de la Asociacion Podcast y la consolidacion de las Jornadas Nacionales de Podcasting (JPod) le dan una nueva dimension a la comunidad de aficionados del podcasting que, desde 2015, vive una etapa caracterizada por la proliferacion de redes de podcasts, tanto desde el ambito independiente y amateur como desde las grandes corporaciones mediaticas (Grupo Prisa con Podium Podcast).

JPod is an island of cubicles at a big computer company where the novel's main characters are toiling away at a skateboard video game that their bosses seem intent on ruining--first the hapless geeks are forced to add a "hip and edgy" turtle character, and then a new regime of management wants to turn the whole thing into a fantasy adventure involving flying carpets and magical sprites.
