Why Reddit is Leaping into the Podcast Game

"Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian recently announced a new endeavor: Upvoted, the official Reddit podcast that digs deeper into the stories readers care most about.

Ohanian spent last summer recording and releasing his own podcast, NYRD Radio. When his fellow Reddit board members called him back to the company late last year, Ohanian brainstormed about how to keep creating content that's right for Reddit and its fans. Upvoted is his elegant solution: a place to explore the strange stories that could only have happened when a bunch of strangers call a digital village home."
