Finding the right podcatching tools
The popularity of Podcasts are developing better and better tools for the purpose. I added iPodderX to my tools for downloading my podcasts (http://ipodderx.com/download ) This has good integration with iTunes, including creating playlists by subscription. The listing of audio sources are reasonably complete. As a long time devotee of Leo Laporte’s TV shows, I appreciate the ability to download the weekly radio shows on KFI (Podcast Link ). The ‘internet only’ radio shows are using podcasting extensively to support their audience. This is to broadcasting what PageMaker was to desktop publishing. That is being augmented by the mainstream media which is starting to move with more content of this type. This includes sources from the BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressreleases/stories/2005/04_april/14/pod.shtml ), CBC (http://www.cbc.ca/podcasting/ )
