Pondering Podcast Access -- A Conundrum I Have No Solution To

Submitted by StephenK on Wed, 02/13/2008 - 17:09
The Online Dictionary for Library and Information Science defines podcast as:
A digital media file (audio or video) syndicated over the Internet via an RSS feed. The author or host of a podcast is known as a podcaster. Once available online, podcasts can be downloaded for listening on portable media devices (MP3 players, pocket CDs, cell phones) and personal computers. Despite the similarity in name, listening to or watching a podcast does not require an iPod, although the device can be used for that purpose. Online directories of podcasts are usually browsable by subject and searchable by keyword(s) (examples: Podcast Alley, Podcast.net, and Podfeed.net).
This describes the program produced here in the Las Vegas metro. This also describes the method of normal distribution. Is this the normal means of accessing LISTen, though?
