Podcasts are Far-flung

I love the podcast craze! I use Apple’s iTunes to purchase and download music for my iPod and they have now added free podcasts. Podcasts are audio shows that you download to your computer, MP3 player or iPod so that you can listen at your convenience. The word ‘podcast’ is a takeoff on the word ‘broadcast.’

You can rarely go to a website without seeing a button to download a podcast. Some examples from iTunes include: Ebert and Roeper, The Al Franken Show and Radio Leo. If you go to your favorite online newspaper chances are they have podcasts available.

If you are looking for educational podcasts go to epn.org. This site focuses on K-12 subject-specific podcasts.

Everyone is getting into podcasts. Even Kraft Foods (I know you’ve had their mac and cheese sometime in your life!) lets you download a recipe collection to your iPod! If anyone tries this, please le me know how it works out.
