During my time in the music business, there were a few instances of acts who would seemingly come out of nowhere, be everywhere, then disappear as quickly as they came.
This is how I feel about Clubhouse right now.
There were a couple of months when you couldn't go anywhere online without people talking about it, "invites" to get in were going for big money, and many podcasters were fearing it would negatively affect their audiences.
Right now, except for people who largely invested in Clubhouse and are still selling that dream, nobody cares. At least in most niches. Like anything, there are still a few groups sticking things out.
But not podcasters.
Facebook, Twitter, and other major players are working on audio-only options that are similar to Clubhouse. And Clubhouse is still valued at something like $4,000,000,000.
But is it valuable to you and me?
For now, I'm sticking to non-Clubhouse options are far as connecting with people. The US is doing better as far as COVID-19 numbers, which means we may be able to get together for in-person events soon. And Zoom is still going strong.
"Big Podcast Club" isn't dead. Let's call it a hibernation. Or maybe just a transformation.
Whatever it is, I'm not doing anything on Clubhouse at the moment.
Will I be back to Clubhouse in the future? Maybe. But until then visit me here.
