I am have always been a fan of podcasts, but have never had really any good way to share the interesting things I am listening to. A couple weeks ago I struck upon an idea that seems so bafflingly simple in retrospect: I could just host my own podcast feed.
Podcasts at the end of the day are just RSS
feed which are a specific XML format.
Clients periodically reload the RSS feed and when new
<item/> tags are
present, then they will typically prompt or automatically downloaded the nested
<enclosure/>. It really is a simple format, and trivial to wire into my blog
Check out my Podcast Picks feed, which you can add to your podcast player to get semi-regular updates of podcasts episodes that I have found interesting, funny, or generally usefu.
