Podcasts

According to Wikipedia:

A podcast is a multimedia file distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds, for playback on mobile devices and personal computers. The term as originally coined by Ben Hammersley in an article in the Guardian on February 12, 2004 [1], was meant as a portmanteau of “broadcasting” and “iPod”.

The term podcast, like ‘radio’, can mean both the content and the method of delivery. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster. Though podcasters’ web sites may also offer direct download or streaming of their content, a podcast is distinguished from other digital audio formats by its ability to be downloaded automatically using software capable of reading feeds like RSS or Atom.

Ive been thinking of putting up a podcast on the site but havent really had the time to do it. Nor did i found a need. I figured if it isnt as entertaining as askaninja.com or as informative as other podcasts then why do it? I did however read up on podcasting and and an article by Neil Crespi in where he gives his own ideas on how NOT to do podcasting.
