Random observation on Podcasts

Remember podcasts — the big to-do of 2005? I realized, as I worked through the playlist on my iPod during yesterday’s 22-hour travel marathon, that I have not listened to a complete podcast since the Gillmor Gang hung it up in November.

What’s on my iPod? I have a lecture series on the history of Byzantium, some repeats of Christopher Lydon’s OpenSource radio show, a few leftovers from the now-discontinued BikeScape … old episodes of the Ricky Gervais show.
Yep, I’ve hung it up on podcasts. Main reason — impossible to multi-task while listening. Great for car rides and commutes, not so good for background noise while working, and certainly a buzzkiller for erg workouts.

  1. Amen, brother. I shined it on after I got tired of hearing bloviated suckfaces pontificating about shit they knew nothing about and had not prepared for.
    I have about 4 hours of lectures from California historian Kevin Starr I’ll listen to on the way up and back from Azusa this morning but that’s about it.
    Perro and I are off to Azusa now.
    10-4 over and out.
