I think Podshow is or did acquire podcast alley. I'd assume they would 
consolidate the directory in time, it would make sense if they did acquire it.

  Subject: [Blind Casting] Disabilities Node/Category


  Greetings,

  All the comments about the Disability node for iPodder are very interesting, 
and have given me several things to think about. I'm still committed to 
advocacy on this front. Next step is to resend my note to Mr. Curry, as an open 
letter, which will allow me to publish it around the podcasting community, I 
wanted to let you know, though, that there is a directory that does include a 
Disabilities category. That would be <a href=" 
http://www.podcastpickle.com";>Podcast Pickle</a>. Not many shows in that 
subcategory yet. It would be great if podcast producers on this list who want 
to identify their shows as disability-oriented would begin to get listed on the 
Pickle. You could even list yourself and use "blindness" as a keyword but not 
list yourself in the Disabilities category. On the Pickle, you get to pick two 
categories, plus you create your own sets of keywords. Adding your cast to the 
Pickle would help your own visibility and would add to the credibility of the 
Pickle directory as it positions itself in the directory sphere. They  already 
has a number of great features, including search, and the ability to create a 
favorites list that others can browse. You can also play podcasts directly from 
each podcaster's page. The Disabilities subcategory on Podcast Pickle is within 
the Society top-level category. By the way, I own no stock in the Pickle. What 
I like about it is that competition with Podcast Alley and, to a lesser extent, 
IndiePodder, has caused the Pickle to be very innovative and responsive to its 
users.
