Potkast: new super directory of podcasts…
Podcasting keeps accelerating! This new site called “Potkast” has a great user interface, podcasts by category and country, and even a search function (and I even found my own podcasts by searching for “Borsch”).
With Adam Curry getting his own podcast show on Sirius satellite radio, Leo Laporte (formerly of TechTV fame) and his former TTV cronies new show “This Week in Tech” apparently picked up by a radio station (may be the downtrending KYCY who decided to go “all podcasting”), this podcasting phenomena is getting pretty exciting.
Of course, for the handful of people who’ve listened to my heretofore modest podcasts, my efforts may not be all that exciting. I still submit that there will be a ‘radio’ show for everyone who wants to do one and a show for nearly every taste. I wonder how this is going to affect the music services like iTunes, Napster and Yahoo? I’ve been downloading TONS of content for free and have plenty to listen to without buying anything…and this trend will continue.

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.
