Voices in your head: iPodder + iTunes + iPod
This is a very brief audio overview of today’s experience of setting up iPodder — software for the PC and Mac that let’s you select from a directory of “genre’s” and subscribe to podcasts with automatic downloading to a directory on your computer. (Update on 7/19/09: I long ago cancelled the HipCast (formerly Audioblog) service so this mp3 is lost forever).
Next is setting up a “Smart Playlist” in iTunes for that “Podcast” genre. I have my iPod setup with iTunes to automatically update itself every time I plug it in — even the Smart Playlists.
There you have it: a completely automated chain of events for seamless content from the internet to my iPod. Take a listen to how I set up this chain…and that I have even MORE content than I had before!

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.
