Training and Consulting in New Tools for Effective Web Use

This site is an archive of posts that I hope you will find useful. Please visit my new site at Marshallk.com.


Podcasting is a very new medium that utilizes the widespread use of portable MP3 players (like iPods) and feed syndication. Podcasts are sound files that can be downloaded easily for listening to either on your computer or an MP3 player. Syndication technology allows some MP3 players to be automatically loaded with new episodes of Podcast shows they have subscribed to each time they are docked.

Podcasting is an exploding medium, there are already shows on an amazing variety of topics. The field is still dominated by computer, technology and business shows, but there are more and more other types of Podcasts being launched every day. Religious Podcasts are very widely listened to. Some organizations, including major corporations, are also using Podcasting to send internal messages to group members and employees. There are as many possible uses for Podcasting as there are for any recorded, regularly updated audio.

If you would like help recording, promoting, or just listening to Podcasts - that's something else I'm excited to help you do.

On the right sidebar of the front page, there's a syndicated list of the top ten podcasts for this month from the biggest Podcast directory site, Podcast Alley.

Some of my favorite podcasts right now are:
The Global Shortwave Report
Lots of things on Radio4All.net
The Dawn and Drew Show
Geek News Central
Web 2.0 Conference via IT Conversations

I keep a Furl archive catagory (a social bookmarking service) labled "Podcasting Content to Listen To." Feel free to check that out as well.
