iPod and "podcasting"

So, before I got my iPod, I thought that I'd never listen to a podcast. The entire culture around it sucked. Lots of people patting themselves on the back over technology always bugs me.

However, when I got the iPod, I decided to browse through the iTunes Music and look at the podcasts.

Wait. There's NPR Podcasts?
And CNN News Updates?
Ooh, Mother Jones Radio!
I can get onpoint on the iPod?

So yeah. Needless to say, I kind of fell in love. Now, every morning, I plug my iPod in, and get a couple hours of audio, and if I have to go out, I just grab it and have NPR to listen to wherever I go.

The culture around podcasting may suck, but the idea of getting radio when I want it, where I want it, is kind of cool.

This must be what people who first get TiVo feel like.
