Just wondering how many of you Sony users are into podcasting?, a lot of people seem to think that because it's got pod in the title that you need an ipod but it works with any mp3 player. Only disadvantage of using another player is that without itunes you can't browse the largest directory for them. http://www.podcastalley.com/ is decent though. There are podcasts about absolutely anything these days and they certainly make a nice change for just hearing the same old songs every day. I have 9 podcasts subscribed at the mo, four of these are novels (action/adventure/sci fi usually) where the author records a chapter or two each week then your podcatcher picks it up automatically and dumps in on your player for you. With these I tend to wait until the whole novel has been released, then use mp3merge to stitch the files together and listen to it all in one lump.The 5th one is Escape Pod, this podcasts pays authors to record a short story of around 30mins which they release every thursday. Next I subscribe to Claybourne which is a bizarre serialized scifi/supernatural/horror soap opera, it was produced for New Zealand radio in the seventies and now gets podcast. Last two are short crank call casts which come from the American radio station Z100, the first is Romeo's Celebrity crank calls - no they don't make crank calls to celebs they get the celebs to make the crank calls, check out the Missy Elliott one. Second one is Z100 phone taps, irate American's certainly make the walk to work more interesting. Anyway that's what I like listening to but there really is something for anyone, the latest one I noticed was the Lostcast, a podcast devoted to Lost and recorded from Hawai.
