Title: New to podcasts and confused...
Post by: Kalys on March 10, 2007, 03:37:26 pm
Can someone tell me; I'm listening to the podcast of episode 62. I find myself mildly confused by the lack of video accompaniment. Is that just how a podcast works? I can understand why it would...I guess...

It's kind of like a non-live radio broadcast. Might be weird to get used to, but what I do is draw and do other stuff while Steve or whoever talks.

It also has something to do with iPods, and I'm completely ignorant about those.

The best thing you can do while listening to one of Steve's podcasts is play a Nintendo DS.

Reading or doing anything else is too distracting.

Whenever I get sucked into WoW, I listen to my huge list of podcasts while I'm questing. They compliment each other surprisingly well.

It's a pun on broadcast (Captain Obvious strikes again).

I think (i may or may not be right, but this is what I heard) that ipods actually came out after podcasts were around.

No. definitely not. iPods have been out longer than you think. I remember my friend having one 3 or 4 years ago.

I believe it was named to indicate a broadcast that can be played on an iPod combining it to a Podcast. iPod has been around longer.

Welcome to the forum. There are some video podcasts out there but Steve hasn't done that yet. Like everyone else says, you can usually do something else while listening.

If you listen to This Week in Tech, Leo is calling them "netcasts" now, because Apple is getting very weary if the misuse of it's copyright "Pod." They forced podcasts with Pod somewhere in their name to change them and things like that, and Leo is trying to start a movement to break away from Apple. Not many people are taking up the new name, but he still says calls them netcasts, and with his huge listener base, if Apple did make a move, I think a lot of people would be quick to switch to netcast. That, and people who refer to them as podcasts give the idea that you need an iPod to listen to them, which makes people without iPods think they need one to listen to them.
