I have been playing around in iTunes lately, browsing for podcasts to get an idea what is available. I found some really great stuff! There are podcasts for everything! Fun, educational-it's all there. Here are a few highlights of what I've found just to get anyone new to the medium started. I love the idea of getting information and entertainment in this format, you can even subscribe to a podcast and visit the accompanying website if available AND you can also subscribe to the RSS feed if there is one available to get any image and text content sent to your RSS aggregate. Pretty cool (if you need even more information to sort through and time to kill)

And much much more of course. Podcasts are a great way to share information and to entertain, I look forward to learning more about them in our last class this semester. I plan to look into ways to use this tool in the library and for education.
P.S. Here's something completely unrelated to podcasting, just for fun.
A very funny skit about the challenges of learning new technology. Sigh, if only we still used the scroll.
