OK. I believe I have know joined the faithful in listening to podcasts. In working on my video blog (possibly morphing into “mediablog”) I came across this article on using a Pocket PC (in my case, I have a Dell Axim X5) for playing podcasts. The setup was simple and Doppler, a Windows based “pod-catcher”, worked marvelously. As I write this I am listening to Gardner Campbell’s podcast of an interview with Neil Finn (ex. Crowded House, Split Enz).
I had often thought of my Pocket PC as an MP3 player as well as personal organizer. Now it has so much more purpose as an educational tool. “Classcasts” anyone?
