It had to happen. Mike Stackpole, Aaron Williams, and the guys from the Dragon Page just set up the SciFi Podcasting Network. If you’re a fan of genre fiction and know how to set up a podcast subscription for yourself, you should check it out. Not-so-coincidentally, iTunes 4.9 makes listening to shows like this a piece of cake.
I’m just poking around at podcasting myself. Since I have little free time and virtually no commute during which I could listen to spoken-word podcasts, they don’t fit my life well. I could listen to them while I work, I suppose, but I find it hard to pay any kind of attention to spoke-word recordings while I write. At those moments, I focus all the verbal parts of my brain on creative, so there’s nothing left for listening. If I do listen, it distracts me too much from the writing. Ah well.
Still, for those with more time or longer commutes, please do check it out. If you like it, let me know about it. I have a lot of respect for those involved, and I wish them only the best of luck.
