Now here's something I'm unfamiliar with.
The podcasts I listened to where on the Education Podcast Network. I listened to two poetry readings and one about copycats from the Idiom of the Day. I liked the idiom one, but was not crazy about the poetry readings. I like poetry, but I was imagining those poems being read differently than they were. Still neat to be able to listen to these things rather than reading them though.
This thing hasn't inspired me to do any podcasting myself, but perhaps I will look more into them in the future. I would like to see what other kinds of podcasts are out there besides just the ones on the Education Network.
