Podcasts are fun for everyone.

Yes! Finally something I know something about. I think podcasts are awesome! A good reason for that is not only do I know how to do them but I’ve done them! They aren’t hard in case you were wondering.
Podcasts are free, for now, and offer a very simple way of sharing or receiving audio or media files. Whatever you desire, there’s a great chance it exists on a downloadable podcast, lucky you. A podcast can be anything from a TV or radio program to a voiceover you recorded and edited in your own bedroom! The possibilities are really endless.
A lot of podcasts give the option to listen before you download. Even through the service is free, who wants to go through the trouble of downloading and taking up space on their iPod when there’s a new Britney Spear’s album?
Podcasts are for everyone. Check out anything and everything. Entertain your self or your significant other with their favorite funny news guy like Anderson Cooper or pipe down the kids in the back seat during road trips with Sesame Street. There’s a plentiful array of treats for everyone. For all those of you who are cool enough to speak another language, podcasts now offer radio and TV shows in over 50 languages.

So fire up your iPod and find a treasure out there in the digital world. Don’t have an iPod? Not to worry. Podcasts can also be downloaded to your computer as well as other personal media players. As long as your device plays mp3 or videos files you will be just fine. Podcast are usually distributed through RSS technology. And this means no waiting!

Great! So you now know what a podcast is and your interest is peaked, so what now?
Well to receive podcasts automatically, you will need podcast subscription software. This software can be obtained through iTunes or services like Odeo. Now go out and enjoy what is still free and is rising in popularity. Hey, you can't get left behind nowadays.

Great information. I like how you put that "they are free for now" because they might now be for long. I also liked the graphics and charts. Seems like you put a lot of thought into the blog.
