Sirius to Offer 'Podcast' Show
NEW YORK - Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. is latching onto the "podcasting" phenomenon, launching a show later this month that will feature a daily selection of the increasingly popular do-it-yourself audio programs.
Ok. So... from what I gather, this so-called "podcast" is basically... MP3s of shitty internet radio. Great. Bloggers who think they're radio personalities (as opposed to failed radio personalities who think they're bloggers). So I followed the link to www.ipodder.org, which is the blog where these future radio "talents" (and I use that word as liberally as possible) post their links.
The show, which Sirius was expected to formally announce on Monday, will begin broadcasting weekdays on May 13. It will be hosted by Adam Curry, the former MTV personality who helped create the technological tools that allow podcasting to work. The show will be broadcast on Sirius channel 148, a talk-radio station that does carry commercials, unlike Sirius' all-music channels.
Podcasts are essentially audio files made by amateurs and uploaded to the Internet where they can be shared with other listeners, either at their computers or on portable digital listening devices such as Apple Computer Inc.'s hot-selling iPod — thus the name "podcast," a combination of "pod" and "broadcast."
Now, keep in mind, I didn't even attempt to listen to any of these shows. However, I believe these postings speak for themselves:
New Podcast - CoasterRadio.com PodcastLook, I'm not going to pretend that anyone reads my stupid blog besides Will, who I don't even think reads it half the time. And I'm allright with that. This is not for you, this is for me to spew my venom somewhere so I can look back and say, "Hey, remember that time I thought the Mavericks were going to win the NBA Championship and nobody believed me? Man, I was so money on that." But the idea of reading this nonsense into a microphone in my computer, and making it into an MP3 so you weirdos can download it to your iPod then go and do whatever it is you do with your iPod just strikes me as... well, retarded.
