I’d like to thank Kevin for inviting me to podcast here at Wizbang. This has been one of my favorite blogs for years. I am in awe of participating in the Wizbang Blog Universe. I started podcasting a little over a year ago at the Rip & Read Blogger Podcast, and have 160 shows in the can so far. I read a lot of political blogs, watch a little C-SPAN, and try to combine interesting blog posts with recorded audio to make a 10-20 minute program once or twice a week.
For those new to Podcasting, its kind of like an audio weblog, wrapped in some technology that lets listeners subscribe, and automatically get every episode downloaded to their PC. You can subscribe using iTunes, or other software, such as indiePodder, or Doppler Radio. To subscribe to the Wizbang Podcast, copy the RSS feed address to your podcasting client. It’s http://feeds.wizbangblog.com/WizbangPodcast.
If you have an iPod, iTunes will copy each MP3 file to your portable player automatically. For other MP3 players, Windows Media can automatically synch your PC music files, or you can copy them to the player using your own software. Some cell phones now support MP3. You can also listen on your computer, if you prefer.
I listen to a lot of podcasts on my commute, on a walk, or while working around the house. Podcasting puts the listener in control of the content, unlike traditional radio. And with the help of Podcasting pioneers like Adam Curry, at last count there were 4095 podcasts available. And with the introduction of the Wizbang Podcast, its up to 4096.

Thanks for listening.
