The State of Podcasting 2009

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Podcasts have been a huge part of my daily routine for a good four years or so. They have practically replaced any need I have to listen to live radio.  So what podcasts matter? What are the shows that I subscribe to and are “must listens” each week? Glad you asked. :) Here are the [...]

The MacBreak Weekly Drinking Game

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Warning: This post is extremely nerdy and really “outs” my geek-ish tendencies (though, “no, I will not be writing any MacBreak Weekly FanFic”). :) I listen to a lot of podcasts. For me, they have pretty much completely replaced my listening of live radio. The radio that I do listen to is “timeshifted” through pretty [...]

AppleTV Podcasting Best Practices

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

You know that I love my AppleTV and with the recent updates, it’s even better than ever… Not that I’m an expert on the topic of podcasting, but I got this interesting email from Apple today with some how-to’s/best practices and figured that I’d put it up here so I didn’t lose track of it [...]

Get your tickets to Croncast Live!

Friday, May 18th, 2007

Kris and Betsy are taking their podcast, Croncast, on the road (well, technically it’s more “down the street”) by doing a live show at The Comedy Shrine in lovely downtown Naperville. More information is available over at and you can order tickets directly from Eventbrite… As I have mentioned to Kris in the past, [...]

Guest spot on the “Capture the Conversation” podcast

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

I had the pleasure of being involved in an interesting discussion on Room 214′s “Capture the Conversation” podcast last week. My friend, Kris Smith, invited Evan Brown and I onto the podcast to talk about all things RSS, SEO, Moderated Media and web (with a little law on the side for Evan)… It’s my first [...]

What’s your favorite podcast?

Monday, August 14th, 2006

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Croncast rules. If you’re not listening, there’s no better time to start than now. What’s in it for you, you ask? How about a brand new iPod (along with one for me)?  Click the image below and enter yourself in a contest. Even if you don’t [...]

There’s no excuse to not subscribe, now…

Friday, May 26th, 2006

Let’s talk about my podcast, stuffing… You know you secretly love hearing me blabber about all things unimportant. I know it. I see the three downloads whenever I post one (ok, two since I should take myself out of the equation). I’ll admit that I unintentionally have made it difficult to subscribe to the [...]

Valleywag’s Podcast Round-Up

Wednesday, March 8th, 2006

I love this… “Gillmor Gang: Until that thing is ten well-trimmed minutes, forget it. In fact, a fan-edited copy of this — like by those kids who make Full Metal Jacket emo music videos — would rock. Or Steve and company could do the show drunk.”

Using Tags As Podcast Show Notes

Friday, September 30th, 2005

As we all know, I’m a fan of podcasts. I wish I was more of a fan of doing my own podcast (or I should say, “had more time”?)… some day soon, i promise! One of the shows that I enjoy listening to regularly is the Drunk and Retired Podcast. While the show’s core revolves [...]

NPR Podcasts

Thursday, September 1st, 2005

Well, it looks like NPR has started to roll out their podcasts (after dumping their Audible service in recent weeks). So far it looks like a very impressive list of shows… That is until I actually looked at the descriptions of some of them. I’ll admit, the nerd in me enjoys listening to Michael Feldman’s [...]
