I heard on daily source code that audible is launching something. But as
always, No Damn Announcements. I guess I'll always remember what that
agreement NDA is, the soundvertising phenomenon from Adam Curry, heh. I
guess I'll find out next week.

Hi Jeff. Thanks for that! It's too bad that they don't stream the conference that's to be held this weekend on podcasting! I have downloaded things from the Godcast Network! There's someone that goes by the name of Tim Podcast. I think it might be the person you mentioned. I've heard some of his shows. They're pretty good!

RAWVOICE INC. TO INTRODUCE PODCASTER NEWS NETWORK
ONTARIO, CA - November 11, 2005 - Internet media company RawVoice Inc. plans
to unveil the
PodcasterNews Network (PCN)
at the Portable Media Expo this weekend. The Podcaster News Network allows
listeners to assemble and download personalized podcast news shows with
ease. The PodcasterNews Network can be found at
"This is the ultimate customized audio news program," said Todd Cochrane,
President and CEO of RawVoice "The PodcasterNews Network lets someone pick
topics they want to hear and puts them together into one program feed,
called a MyCast. You want a little tech news, some sports and some fashion
each day, then that's what you put in your MyCast." Cochrane, who is also
host of Geek News Central and author of Podcasting: The Do it Yourself
said PCN is the next step in personal media evolution. The site focuses on
user experience and will be a terrific advertising opportunity to reach
Jeevan Padiyar, the CFO of RawVoice and an admitted geek, said PCN is for
anyone who wants free, on-demand, customized news. "PCN is for people who
tired of waiting to hear what they care about. It allows them to construct
and download a news program that is 100% in tune with their interests."
Podcasting is an increasingly popular form of audio content delivery that requires far less equipment than what is needed for over-the-air broadcasting. Podcasts are radio shows that can be downloaded from the internet and listened to on an mp3 player like the iPod.
The podcasters contributing to PCN inject their own opinions into their
shows. "By being passionate about their subject areas, our podcasters bring
news to life," Cochrane said. PCN contributors already have established long
format podcasts. The best part about PCN, according to Cochrane is that each
news segment has fresh ideas and commentary, and runs just five minutes.
PCN is designed to work with iTunes, Yahoo, or any other podcast software
that syncs a user's mp3 player. Visitors can also listen to shows from the
directly. "We want to ensure complete user satisfaction, and the best way to
do that is to give the end user as many choices as possible," added Brian
Yuhnke, the companies Creative Director, "but the greatest part of the site
is the MyCast which allows visitors to create an account and pick only the
segments they want included in their MyCast." The proprietary PCN software
then takes care of the rest. It automatically updates each MyCast with the
content from only those categories already selected, so that a fresh news
show is available each day, living up to RawVoice's philosophy of providing
The diverse podcaster line up includes Mental Health Guru Dr. Fran Babiss,
New York GLBT activist Allen Roskoff and Bay-area pastor and commentator
Tim Hohm. Users can include segments from as many podcasters as they want,
and podcasts on a variety of topics are being added to PCN every day.
