Jeff I thought you had put together a list of blind broadcasters and I personally would like to see a category for us. Hell they have categories for everything else. I haven't done a podcast myself in a while but I think I finally have a topic of interest so plan on something from me in the near future. I don't listen to to many podcasts any more. I'm involved in many things of course so for me time is my issue but I do read this list all the time and I am certainly interested in what people are doing. I certainly hope we can keep this community alive and find our place in the podcasting market.
