Today my podcast pal Myke Hurley launches a new audio series called Behind the App, which is a multi-interview audio documentary that tells the story of app development and developers and how our App Store world came to be.
In a blog post on Relay FM Myke explains a bit more about it:
I’ve been working on this every day since November, and it’s been a massive undertaking. This kind of show is way different to anything I’ve made before. The new format for this series focuses more on storytelling. I interviewed a bunch of awesome people to help me get a sense for how I was going to cover this, and I spent a tonne of time going through all of these interviews, chopping them up in to interesting clips, then researching and writing scripts to tie the episodes together.
This is not a podcast of a few people yakking in a live interview setting. It’s much more like something you’d hear on public radio, with many voices helping Myke tell this story. If you’re interested in Apple, the iPhone, or the App Store, I highly recommend you give it a listen. (Overcast link.)
