    Have you heard about podcasting yet?

    Here is an explanation from wikipedia:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast

    It really seems to be gaining in popularity, and now there are several shows (or podcasts) that focus on movies and DVD's.

    The first big misconception is that you need an iPod to listen. You don't.

    The shows are produced (usually) as mp3 files that can be downloaded and played by just about any computer with speakers connected to it.

    But if you do have a portable mp3 player, and a computer, it's even easier.

    I would like to invite everyone to listen to my new podcast, "The Screening Room", and let me know what you think.

    For the next show I'm hoping to get in a feature on laserdiscs, a new DVD review, and lots of other things.

    Let me know what you think!
    Thanks,
    Michael Hill

    Michael,

    Feedback ... nice job on the leveling of the audio as well as the quality of the audio. I'd like you to make your points a little more concisely and flat out talk faster as you sound a bit like public radio when they have time to kill. Your voice is quite pleasant and works quite well for a radio/podcast.

    Good Luck.

    Very nice. One of the better Podcasts I've heard (there are so many turds out there). I subscribed to it and hope to here more soon. I do have to echo Rich in that just don't worry about being too formal. Just talk it up like you would with your buddies. NPR sucks, no reason you should. Thanks.

    I was reading an article in the latest Wired and I thought it was you in there (didn't remember your name). This guys podcast was called "Reel Reviews" I think. You've got competition. [​IMG]
