CARNIVALS, CATS, CAPITALISTS, CASTINGS

I have to check out the possibilities to start podcasting later on this summer. Maybe I should get Podcasting For Dummies? [Via Stone's post, Odeo: The Next Big Thing?, BlogCritics.org.] Here is an excerpt from David Worthington's article, Audible Aims to Turn Podcasting into Business Model.

Audible has begun to use Really Simple Syndication (RSS) to podcast spoken word periodical programming over the Web. Beginning today, audio programming from sources such as the New York Times, This American Life, Wall Street Journal and BBC News Hour may be downloaded by Audible customers and content partners. (BetaNews.com, 06/24/05.)


Rush Limbaugh has been podcasting for a couple of weeks. If you want to listen to a veteran in podcasting, go to Adam Curry's Daily Source Code for his keynote speech at Gnomedex. [Editor's comment: I don't like his references to the hippie festival Woodstock, but the talk is pretty interesting overall.]

Talking about podcasting, this week's edition of the Carnival of the Capitalists is hosted by Business Blogcasting. Maybe Morris could be interested in becoming a "podca(s)t(er)"... He likes to walk on the keyboard now and then, so maybe I could teach him to say something in a microphone? What do you think? For more cats, check out this edition of the Carnival of the Cats at Lab Kat.
