Welcome BBC Viewers!

First I hope you liked my discussion with Nikki on drive this morning for your benefit I have linked to several resources to get you started listening to podcast. First and foremost you do not need a portable media player if you have one, you will be able to experience the power of walk away content and the full impact of podcasting. For those of you that like technology news make sure you check out my personal show where I break the content down so that the common man or woman can understand. The show is available under the podcast link at the top of the page.

Finding podcast in a category you are interested in is easy for the best of independent podcast visit Podcast Alley for a mix of commercial and independent shows visit the Yahoo podcast directory, those of you with iTunes already have a podcast directory at your fingertips through the music store even though the directory is quite unorganized.

If you have portable media players the application I recommend to use, for synchronizing podcast to your device automatically is Juice, this application will work with tunes and Windows Media Player or you can utilize iTunes.

If you want to get started podcasting make sure you order my book on Podcasting. “Podcasting The Do it Yourself Guide

Update: Nikki referred to me as the PodFather but as I clarified to her I am a podcaster and the title of PodFather belongs to Adam and Dave.
