On the podcast trail...

Apart from offering the Go Digital podcasts from this site, I haven't been following the podcast craze. On thing is that there is so much to cover, another that it is arguable whether this falls into the 'mobility' category. For me, podcasting is another form of mobility: information on the move. Yet true, all podcasting cannot be followed on this site - I just wouldn't have time to sleep!

Anyway, here are a couple of recent interesting ones:

- A cardiovascular surgeon turns podcasting into an educational vehicle for elderly patients:"a cardiovascular surgeon at the Arizona Heart Institute in Phoenix, recently launched a podcasting series to educate patients he believes is among the first of its kind. He has produced podcasts, from two minutes to an hour long and contain video and audio content, that keep clinic visitors informed about the procedures they'll undergo and brief them on ways to lead a healthy lifestyle afterward."

- Also: Wired News Launches Podcasts: "Every day, we'll publish one or more columns as an MP3 audio file that you can subscribe to at our Podcast blog."
