Hi Steve! I think this podcasting stuff is great! It gives people a chance
to do reviews on products, and give a particular point of view, if they
wish! I've downloaded a lot of podcasts since I've used iPodder and Juice,
but I guess I'm probably going to have to get some CDRW's to burn these
onto, then I can listen and erase, and make room for others!

I know you brought up this situation a while ago too. I'm probably one of those many guilty ones who listen to nearly everything but never respond with any feedback. Even if I were to offer much feedback, I would never do it after every single episode of a program. I would probably only offer feedback if something really popped out at me and made me jump "up and down" or something like that. I think you should try and rely on your download stats to see how many people are actually getting to your shows. Of course, we never know how many of those downloads are actually listened to, do we:). I'm sure that feed back makes a podcaster feel good and all that but I figure that one might get one response out of every hundred listeners. As a side note, I even got a response from the band I played recently with my podcast. I reported the spin on the podsafe music network like we're supposed to and I got a blog comment from the artest thanking me for playing it; that was pretty cool.
Scott, you're reviews are always fun to listen to. I recall the several you did for Main Menu several years ago.

Thanks for the reply and feedback.
I'll not be hanging up the headset now because people are actually
listening and learning so the podcasts will continue for a long long time.
long live the wormcast.
Also please check out my friend's podcast the ozcast over at http://ozcast.libsyn.com/rss/
very informative and Adam who runs this fine podcast is a gentleman and he'd also appreciate feedback on his fine efforts.
