    I would have to agree, Though, there are many terrable podcasts out there. I like radio, always will, The talk shows in the Midwest are not that good, and mostly all are one sided.

    They "need" advertisers for Podcasts? No they don't. It's just fine how it is.

    Will someone kindly explain to me what podcasting is. I thought it had something to do with iPods. But I guess not.

    Podcasting is simply recording your own radio show and posting online for people to listen to on their iPods (or any other MP3 player)

    It has nothing to do with the iPod, podcasting means "Portable on Demand", there are many great podcasts avaliable. iPodderX is a great application for newbies.

    It's the same with any media that becomes available to everyone. Remember the early days of desktop publishing and "font salad" documents?
