|In doing some market research over the past few months, I've learned that many people either don't know what a podcast is or have slightly the wrong idea what it is. So I've decided to take time out to explain.|
Podcasts are audio or video files that can be downloaded (99% of the time for free) online, generally via iTunes or via individual web pages. They are used, predominantly over this side of the globe, to alow people listen to highlights of their favourite radio shows and keep informed...even if they cannot listen to the show when it airs live. It also allows people to keep up with shows that aren't available on the wireless...you can listen in daily to a show in Botswana, if you're so inclined!
However, podcasts are also used for the likes of short comedy/informative videos, to get clips of stand up comedy, or some people (like famous movie director Kevin Smith for example) simply use them as ways of ranting and talking to fans without the fear of language/content restrictions.
If you have an iPod/mp3 player and AREN'T downloading podcasts, in my opinion, you're not using it to its full potential. Personally, podcasts get me through the day: whether I'm on a bus, working a long, boring shift or just chilling out with nothing on TV...they ensure that I'm kept entertained and informed of what's going on in the world at all stages.
It's so easy to keep track of your favourite podcasts these days. Just do a search for a show in the iTunes store, if they have a podcast simply click 'Subscribe', then every time you open iTunes the latest episodes will download for free. If you have an iPod, every time you sync it the podcasts will do so automatically. If you have an mp3 player, just put them on manually at your leisure whenever you need them.
Some Recommended Podcasts To Get You Started:
The Ray Foley Show
Best of Chris Moyles
SModcast (the aforementioned Kevin Smith podcast)
5 Live World Football Phone-In
CH Originals: CollegeHumor Original Videos
The Onion News Network
Best of YouTube

Of course, I'm not just doing this out of the goodness of my heart and plugging other shows. By all means, while you're at it, become a subscriber of the Anger Management Therapy podcast. We've subscribers from over 25 different countries and are always looking to add to these numbers...because more subscribers = more cool stuff like prizes on the show for YOU to win!
AMT podcasts EVERY WEDNESDAY with highlights from both Sunday and Wednesday's show. It's about an hour-long so perfect for boring bus journeys etc. We often have podcast-exclusive material, be it skits that wouldn't be suitable for the community airwaves, interviews that we didn't have time to air in-full on the live shows or just Andy and I chilling in studio having the banter that we mightn't have time to on-air.
Currently, we've ALL of Series 2 online for free download...so if you haven't already check out the travels of Caster Semenya, Andy's journey into becoming a 'New Man', me proving I'm a mere mortal in 'Don't Forget the Ly-Rick', interviews with the likes of Skully from Razorlight, Breffny from The Apprentice, Irish comedian Eric Lalor and much, much more!
