I’ve spent too much time in the last four days, strapped to the drivers seat in our Acura MDX – flying solo from Centre City Canada, through Toronto and on to Pittsburgh. This was the first time I really gave Podcasts a good listen – and by and large I liked what I heard. Yes, there is a certain level of self-indulgence in podcasting but that would be part of the point. I want to hear the personalities of the podcasters – rather than the corporate controlled speak of radio broadcasters.
Tim Bednar, TWiT (This week in Technology), PodFather Adam Curry, Leo Laporte and others informed, entertained and occasionally annoyed me (Click on the picture for a screen shot of my subscription list.). The chatter kept me awake and made the drive seem to go faster. On the five hour trip from Toronto to the ‘burgh, I listened to a total of three songs from the iPod – the rest was Podcasting.
I’ve been bitten by the podcasting bug. I majored in Radio @ Ryerson, love the sound of my own voice (there’s that self-indulgence again) and will probably begin podcasting in June. I’ll let "yins" (the Pittsburgh word for y’all) know.
