Beth, that is a good idea, but has two drawbacks as I see it. First, one must take the time to download a podcast, and if things are slow, one might have to wait quite a time for the information. Secondly, one can listen to text at a very highly accelerated rate, but there is a limit to how much you can speed up a cast unless you take it into Sound Forge and triple the speed. It is easier to subcategorize information in text than a podcast. For example, a section on the popular digital recorders might have a general few paragraphs, then wiki like links to a page on each of the popular recorders. 'That way, a person could listen to all, or just a few of the sections. In a cast, it would be difficult to pick and choose the info you wanted, and it would not be possible to link to other things directly.

Whadda ya think?
