I Love Podcasts

I love podcasts. If you haven’t tried them yet, you might find they are a wonderful way to expand you knowledge while exercising or driving. Despite the name, which implies they are for an Apple iPod, podcasts are actually mp3 recordings that will run on any mp3 player or even on your computer if you have an mp3 player. Most sites with mp3 downloadable files also have a flash mp3 file you can use to listen to the recording right there. For an example, check out my PodBean site, http://johnaberle.podbean.com/. You can also Google – or use your favorite search engine, like Yahoo! to find “flash mp3 player” if you want to install one on your site.

Because I find podcasts so helpful, it came as a shock when I read something on Paul Colligan’s Business of Podcasting and New Media blog post, 1/28/09, “Podcasting Is Dead?” http://www.paulcolligan.com/. Apparently some authorities claim podcasting is dead. Yet Paul showed a Google Trends graph that clearly indicates an incredible interest level in podcasts compared to social media, new media, and online media. Obviously the public still thinks podcasts are vital and important. You can find my comment at http://www.paulcolligan.com/2009/01/28/podcasting-is-dead/#comments.

What do you thinK about podcasts? What do you like or not like about them?
