Podcasting is terrific, despite first impressions.

At one time, I felt Podcasting was not for me. No longer.

I “procured” a mini iPod from my son (who, for reasons I still don’t understand felt he needed a bigger one). Coinciding with that, Apple released iTunes 4.9 which provided an inventory of podcasts to subscribe to via the iTunes Music Store.

Since then, the little thing has been my main media delivery device. I’ve stopped listening to the radio during my daily bus commutes to my city centre job. I listen to my growing collection of podcast subscriptions. I listen it while walking the streets. I listen to it while on my daily bike ride. It’s become part of my life.

I’ve even bought Bob Dole’s autobiography as something to listen to since I’ve not found time yet to read the book.

I now see the value of podcasting.

    I guess I’ll be all alone in my world of silent text…Maybe someday I’ll understand it 🙂

    I guess a key selling point for me is that it fills otherwise dead time with rich learning opportunties; which despite my age, still something I aggressively pursue.

    I’m still trying to figure out why the “funny” characters above get posted. They aren’t in the source DOC file.
