    Lately I have heard a lot in the media about a phenomenom known as podcasting which (despite the name) is not really limited nor associated with the ubiquitous iPod, it just acquired the name because iPods are I guess the lever that made digital music in that format really take off, and raised the DRM issue (but that's something else).

    Anyways - I am actually really interested, not in making a podcast, but rathe rin hearing some of what might be out there.

    Today I read about one that is coming out of Iraq even by someone servig out there :eek:

    I'm not going to post any links myself right off - but I am hoping that nyone who is a fan or listens to any podcast or even makes one will put links in this thread for our general enjoyment.

    So come on EP - is there a Piccoto podcast yet? And if not when are you setting one up? :p

    Engadget has podcasts every week. It's a roundup of all the news that they posted that week.

    Adam Curry's podcasts are pretty well-known. :)
    http://www.curry.com

    Edit: I heard a clever interpretation of the word "PODcast" the other day while reading a blog. Although it did originate due to the popularity of the iPod, it's moved beyond now, and the "POD" can now be interpreted as "Personal On Demand" (i.e. a personal, on-demand audio-cast) ;)

    Just wrote up an article on PodCasting myself: http://speedyb.co.uk/?page=comment&sel=268

    There's links to directories full of casts (As Kunal has already mentioned) and some of my recommendations in there too :)

    And so it should. It's just the medium some people have been waiting for. Uncensored and (technically) free. :)

    As bandwidth becomes less of an issue, video blogging will probably catch on. Adds a whole new level of "personal touch" to your posts then. That'll be fun. :)

    That's what people said when the television was first introduced too. :p
    It might not happen soon, but it'll come eventually. :)

    Alright, I kinda wanted to get into this Podcasts, but I didn't like any of the programs listed when I asked about it. Is there a website that can do the same thing as some of those programs?
