Podcasts

I got the swanky new iPhone just before christmas,iPhone I have to admit, it didn’t live up to all the expectations.   Yes it is a great phone, yes you can play games on it, yes it has a big touch screen, but it is NOT a smart phone.   you can’t use it as a thumb drive, you can’t use it to store documents, you can read stuff, but only if it is an email attachment!  you certainly can’t edit anything.   Bummer. the app store is great, but you to get he good apps you need to spend the cash 🙁

HOWEVER.  iPhone has required getting used to itunes.  Not something i was excited about, BUT I have to admit it, VERY clever stuff.  you can get to the itunes store via you itunes software, it s all integrated with the web, a little scary for some.   in the store i discovered podcasts.   Having never had an mp3 player before never bothered me before, but now, oh my a whole new world has opened up to me.

For the un-iniciated out there a podcast, is basically a radio show that you download.   But loads of people who don’t have radio shows also produce them.  It’s like a free movie rental place for radio style programs.   I have found the radio 4 comedy show, very funny i have found worship central they do a monthly 30minutes cast … also John Piper, international author and speakers puts up his weekly sermons!!

What do you listen to via podcast?
