I Need Help - 12 step program for podcasts

Ok its official. I am an Ipod Junky. My Ipod Mini (older 4 gig model) just got filled. I can't belive how many podcasts I have. I know I need to delete the ones I hear but I want to keep a favorite list. Just can't decide which ones. Anyone want to meet up and creat a group. We can all meet drink coffee and check our Ipods at the door.

Short and sweet. Just want to see if anyone has the same problem.....

Podcast - Problems with setup

So I started my first official podcast today and just had a tough time with my setup. I was listening to Adam Curry's issues he was having recording to the hard drive on his mac and I am having the same issue. I need to beef up my Memory on the G5 but I think a flash based recorder may be the way to go.

I see alot of podcasters going to a traditional recording device outside computer recording. I know I am using GB which takes memory, but it has hanged alot lately.

So I wanted to start by getting some good shows in the can, but I realize that it's going to take more work in order to some good icasts up.

Hopefully we will be up and running soon... Stay tooned

Any comments or feedback. Comment below.

I started posting podcasts today. My weekly podcast, iclectic, is a cast that has somthing for everyone. My first cast sounds like some hack ham radio rant that was dumped to an old 8 track. Yes I am new to the artform and there is a slight learning curve. I promiss the content and breavity will be checked in future icasts so that you will actually want come back for more.

Why podcasting? It's much like amature radio. Anyone with a $10 microphone, a blog and host space on the web can podcast. I have been listiening to podcasts for awhile now and I didn't know it. Once KCRW started podcasting, I wanted to learn more about it. So litterally in a weeks time I have become a Podcast Junky. The market for podcast is ripe for corporate homoginization, and yet only 6 months old this is the future of on-demand audio content from the web.

There is nothing new about downloading audio in MP3 format. Nor is there nothing new in listening to radio content on your ipod. I started by tapping the Real feed from KCRW to hear some of their segments and reviews with musicians and authors. Little did I know I was a consumer of a podcast. So what is new about this? The distribution methods. Adam Curry of MTV fame started with an Apple Script program that would look at Rss feeds for embeded matirial on a periodic basis. Thus saving the trouble to check your favorite blogs or web sites for new mp3 casts.

Is podcasting going to kill radio? No. But what it will do is give consumers (geeks right now) a choice of programming that has never been available before. There are only a number of radio stations and most of commercial radio is the same. So now we have the opportunity to pull media off the web and load our Ipods (or simular devices) to our hearts content. I personally like hooking up my mini to the car stereo for my commute time and at work.

There are tons of resources for Podcasting so I will save the posting of my experience (or lack there of) for a latter time.

If you are interested check out They have a open forum of users who post their blogs chalk full of ideas on how to podcast.

I am sure Howard Stern is safe and will not go out of business anytime soon due to this new craze, but I can tell you Internet will be the defining bell weather of new technology and content delivery and one day in my lifetime, we will see a true marketplace of media that will be affordable, profitable and most importantly independent and diverse.

My 3 cents on podcasting for now. Thanks for tuneing in.
