For a few weeks now I’ve been exploring the world of podcasts. My initial reaction to this technology was simple: why would anybody listen to these things? I have found some though that are worth listening to.
Today, Apple added support for podcasts to iTunes. While this is probably a negative step for the iPodder and iPodderX projects, having support in one of the main audio software packages can only make podcast listening more widespread. By the way, those two packages do have additional features over the iTunes podcast support, and are worth checking out if you become really addicted to these things.
So, what are the podcasts that I’ve been listening too? Well, This Week in Tech and the Engadget podcast are the two that I’ve listened to more than one episode of. I am exploring some more from the iTunes podcast directory now (first up are Linux News Log, Inside Mac Radio and the Linux Links Tech Show)
