With a 40 minute drive each way to work and little to listen to on the radio (with the exception of Minnesota Public Radio), I began downloading mp3’s on an amazing array of information technology topics from Doug Kaye’s ITConversations web site. I’d dump them on my iPod and listen to them on the way to work by connecting my iPod to a tape player adapter and running it through my car stereo.
Then I discovered what I was doing was dubbed ‘podcasting’. The best part was that a guy named Adam Curry created software for podcasting called iPodder and made it available for Mac, Windows, Linux and more. Check it out.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
