Podcasting on KUOW Friday morning

January 7th, 2005 · 3 Comments

This morning, I heard the quick description for Friday’s 10 am hour of Weekday on KUOWPodcasting: The Next Big Thing? – and spent the day wondering which local podcaster would be appearing on the show. I’m not familiar with Puget-Sound-podcasters, except for fellow Bainbridge bloggers Philippe Boucher and Mike Houser. Earlier this evening I checked the radio’s web site but no mention was made.

Now (updated after midnight?) I see that the KUOW.org Weekday page has revealed Rob Greenlee of WebTalk World Radio Show and DownloadRadio.org (based in University Place) will be the guest. I haven’t listened to his show but I’ll try to tune in at 10! Tomorrow I also want to listen to Rob Greenlee’s interview of Doug Kaye on IT Conversations…right now as I’m posting this, I’m listening to the beginnings of a WebTalk discussion from October 2004, linked from this WebTalk podcasting page and it’s fun to hear Rob and Dana dialogue, along with Mitch Ratcliffe. (is it my ear, or are they playing RIAA music?). The show is broadcast on eleven talk radio stations around the country and has a different feel and tone from most podcasts I’ve heard, although I wouldn’t claim to have listened to many varieties. Now they’re discussing how podcasting needs a controversy…

In my humble opinion, however, I do think that KUOW’s list of related links for the Podcasting: The Next Big Thing? show could be a bit longer…the site also says the audio will be available at 11:05 am tomorrow…

    OK, I’ll come out and show what a rube I am by asking: what the heck is podcasting?

    Fran, podcasting is a way to have audio content automatically downloaded to your computer. You subscribe to a podcast feed in the same way that you subscribe to an RSS feed for a blog. Then, anytime a new podcast is posted for that show, your podcast application will download it. If you have an iPod or similar MP3 player it will usually be automatically placed on it. We are about four months into podcasting’s existence and there are over 2000 shows. I produce an interview show and a Seattle Mariners show. About all I listen to now on my commute is podcasts. There are quite a few directories now, you can try http://podcastalley.com/ which has a rating service.

    Matt May (http://www.bestkungfu.com/) has his fifth podcast album up on the net. He is using only public music with a Creative Commons license – in fact his whole project is about podcasting with license-free music. He’s been doing this about a year now. Check out the Staccato links on his site. He shows up occasionally at the meetups if you want to meet him in person.
