Sirius XMU's Blog Radio show is a rich site for exploring the influence of podcasting on satellite radio programming. Bloggers from Web sites such as BrooklynVegan host daily 2-hour shows that also co-exist as playlists or mixtapes posted online and shared by social media profiles. Blog Radio highlights the presence of podcasting aesthetics, including time-shifting and themed playlists, within satellite radio programming, and also reflects SiriusXM's recent efforts to occupy online spaces. Further, Blog Radio demonstrates the ways in which radio in the digital age is shaped by podcasting, especially as radio becomes increasingly visual and mobile.
