When i started podcasting, i also started listening to other peoples podcasts to get inspiration. It also turned out to be very interesting. Instead of listening to music while walking to class, or eating, i could catch up on things.
One of my favorite podcasts is Inside the net. They talk about a different website, or service every week, and interview someone from there and get the inside scoop.
This week they had Podzinger. This website, is like Google for podcasts! How? They use speech to text software to create a transcript for your podcast, then when you search something, it searches through all the transcripts to get your results. Once you find them, you can listen to the excerpt from the podcast, the whole episode, or subscribe to it for good, right there in the search results. Can you say AWESOME!
They also take that and get some really cool features out of it, like Most talked about person of the week.
I submitted my feed, so hopefully i can get listed there soon, they said they would send me an email when my first episode had been transcribed. This should trun out to be really cool.
