WE SAY POD stands for "personal on-demand" and I cannot leave my Friday broadband connection without downloading worthy content for weekend listening. Here are three podcast shows I think make high-quality listening:
- Tom Raftery talks to Drummond Reed about digital identity, infocard. Listeners have said the 47 minute podcast is this is one of the best podleader podcasts. Techies have said they "had to listen to it twice, to actually listen to what he was talking about."
- Adam Curry's Digital Source Code 341 includes segments about why people hate Adam Curry, why newspapers can be sued for nicking your Flickr photos, a big rant from Kevin Reeves about PayPal screwing his clients in Australia, a smaller rant from Madge Weinstein, what simulacra means and two of my fav podsafe music tracks bundled into the 37 minute podcast.
- Steffen Coonan has selected 10 tracks that offer a mellow ambience. Listeners have told me the 67 minute show takes the edge off the Friday commute.
Note to Robert Burke: I think Irish Microsofties and other members of the Irish tech industry should get personal MP3 players and take this kind of stuff with them on the road, away from their XP workstations and into their cars. Spend six months scraping the free content from iTunes and you quickly discover there's a wonderful world of personal media worth carrying around.
