Podcasting

Never heard of podcasting? What are you stuck in the early 2000s or something? Ignorant bastards.

Podcasting, for all intents and porpoises, allows someone to publish audio files on the ol' Internets and an end user to download said files and listen to them wherever they want (on the computer, on their iPod, etc). The beauty of podcasting is that software can actually download a podcast automatically for the end user to listen to at their convenience.

This is great for amateur radio dudes, struggling bands, anyone who wants to get their audio stuff out there. But it's even better for the end users, who can use their mp3 players (hence the name pod-casting) to listen to whatever they want at any time. This thing's gonna catch on real quickly, just you watch...

Slack reader offpeak34 and his buddy have started a Phish Podcast called "Trapped in Time," and I'm definitely going to take advantage of that site. Other jambands are putting stuff out on their own -- Umphrey's McGee (who seems to be all over Slack lately) put out a couple of Best Of podcast compilations from 2004 and February 2005 on their own website.

For other podcasts not related to music or hippies, feel free to go to this site and search around the "Popular Pages" box in the upper left hand corner.

Lesson over. Podcast it up.

Whoa, a mystery appearance by the myterious and mysterioso Slack LaLane!

I always thought he spelled his name question mark, question mark, question mark.

Thanks for the shout out, we hope you all enjoy. If anyone has any song requests or would like to send some comments please feel free. Podcasting is a neat new thing growing out of the internet boom. You can listen to awesome music (like Trapped in Time) or books on tape, or even learn how to cook a turkey. There's some cool stuff. For all of you new to podcasting, I urge you all to explore.
