Do you think radio is dying? Yeah…me too.

Lots of opinions about the death of radio. First it was my daughter (someone who lives for music) who didn’t care about the radio and never listens to it. Then came my iPod, my RadioShark and iPodderX (think TiVo for radio) which has allowed me to capture much of the relevant audio content I care about and get it on to my iPod easily.

With my own blog and my wife’s, we’ve been exploring some “what if’s?” about podcasting. I even picked up a new microphone this weekend to experiment with recording podcasts for her business. So it’s not just a couple of guys in their basement doing a Wayne’s World-like radio show that are considering this new method to deliver content.

WIRED magazine devoted its current issue to “The End of Radio“, other press is writing all about it, and there is significant growth with over 3,500 tracked shows in the iPodder directory.

So stay tuned…not to your radio dial, but your computer.

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. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
