Late To The Party
The thing about the Internet is that sometimes, even when something has been around for a good while, you miss something. Case in point for me is Smodcast or indeed podcasts in general. I’ve been a fan of Kevin Smith‘s movies and while I’ve not gotten round to seeing Red State yet (I know, where have I been!) I’ve enjoyed watching his live shows. Now I’ve known about Smodcast but I never really tuned in, in all honesty I’ve never really been a big podcast listener at all. However, since moving down-under, I’ve missed things like Radio 5 Live and some of the BBC’s coverage of sport.
So what happened the other night was I happened across Apple’s newly released Podcast app as, by all accounts, they’re now making it a separate entity outside of the iTunes ecosystem. I grabbed it and started poking around and found the 5 Live Football Daily (5LFD), Chequered Flag F1 (CFF1) and then Smodcast. I figured they’d give me something to listen to when I walk to work or even in the car rather than the radio so I listened to 5LFD and caught up on the fallout from England’s Euro 2012 campaign and then later, Smodcast (which was hilarious!) then CFF1 and also Around the Horn. I know there may be many of you out there who’ve been listening to podcast since their inception but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how good they are, their content and well everything about them.
I’m now actively looking for other podcasts to tune in to so if anyone has any suggestions please leave them in the comments below and I’ll be sure to check them out.
