    Podcast bubble: The piece is really about how much podcasts can be monetized, and if the outfits doing his are overpriced. So the bubble, if such it is, is a monetization bubble. This is not quite the same thing as a podcast bubble.

    Lithub’s headline notwithstanding, the Gutenberg Bible probably isn’t the most expensive book. It’s hard to say, because they come on the market so rarely, but there are a fair number of copies extant, which brings the price down. One sold for 4.6 million Euros in 1987. By way of comparison, a copy of the Bay Psalm Book, the first book printed in British North America, sold for 13.4 million in 2013. What would a Gutenberg go for today? Who knows? And this is only counting printed books. If we include older manuscript codexes, all bets are off.

    “Democrat Party” is bad usage. “Democrat” is a noun, not an adjective, and cannot be used to modify the word “Party”, which is also a noun. “Republic Party” would also be incorrect usage, for the same reason.

      I didn’t use the word “party”.

      In any case, all I really wanted was to poke fun at how early they are ruining for prescient.
