Podcasting gives voice to amateurs
Benny Evangelista, San Francisco Chronicle, February 28, 2005:
When my editor asked me to try my hand at podcasting, the assignment stirred up an old fantasy I had as a kid growing up in San Francisco — to be a radio news and sports announcer. After all, podcasting, the latest phenomenon to sweep the Internet, lets you create your own radio show. But instead of broadcasting your voice over the air, podcasters record their shows digitally and transmit them in the form of an MP3 file that can be beamed around the world to — as the name implies — iPods or similar digital audio players.
