Podcast Kommen Auch Ohne iPod Aus

Tages-Anzeiger article in GermanOne of the things I like best about netcasting is its global reach. Thanks to Markus Gruetter for this clip from today’s edition of the Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger. I can’t read German but I think the gist of it is netcasting doesn’t require an iPod! (Update: Kyle Goetz has posted a translation on his blog.)
Screen shot from TV storyAnd thanks to Cedric Ingrand, the French TV journalist and host of Plein Ecran on LCI-TV for his story on podcasting featuring both Kevin Rose and me. There’s an English version on his blog. You can also subscribe to the French version on iTunes.

I’ve posted a copy on the English version on Cachefly. It’s a 116MB WMV file but well worth the download. I think it’s the best story I’ve ever seen about TWiT and this new medium. (There’s some good stuff about Revision3, too, including footage from the Rev3 party.)And I’ll be appearing on Mexican radio at 8:20 Central tonight with Ricardo Zamora López on DOMMO, his technology radio show on W Radio 96.9 F.M. Mexico City. (If you speak Spanish the audio is here.)And you know what everyone wants to talk about? Netcast vs Podcast!

iTunes Subversion

It's not podcast!
Thanks to Nik who is taking my campaign to rename “podcasts” to “netcast” right to the source: iTunes. Nik explains how to modify iTunes so it says “Netcasts” instead of the hated “Podcasts.”

He warns that you can screw up your iTunes, but it’s really pretty straightforward. You’re just replacing the localized strings – a feature Apple has designed into all its programs for easy translation. The screen shot at left comes from iTunes 7.0.1.

Thanks, Nik!

Podcaster Feed is Up

I got an email just a short while ago from Matthew Bischoff asking me to set up a podcaster feed of the radio show. Never having heard of podcasting I did a little research and discovered a wonderful idea.
Apparently the brainstorm of former MTV VJ and net guru Adam Curry, podcasting is a way to automatically feed content to your iPod. For some it’s a way of creating their own radio show. For me, it’s a way to feed my radio show to those who want it automatically. Subscribe to my feed using iPodder and you’ll automatically get the new shows the minute they’re posted.

UPDATE: Adam will join me on the radio show at 1p on Saturday to talk about podcasting and the future of Internet broadcasting.
