5 seconds of fame on NPR!

Sign up for Liberated Syndication

Today's National Public Radio Broadcast of "Day to Day:"
Feb. 1 ยท PodCasting -- have you heard of it? A growing number of iPod devotees are creating customized playlists of songs to share Online, where listeners can download them into their own iPods to enjoy the "show" at their leisure.

~Yes, I agree the description is a bit lazy, but hey...~

The segment features short clips from Insomnia Radio, The Bitterest Pill, Daily Source Code, Coverville, and more! Thrilling, to say the least.


You can stream the broadcast by going to
NPR's Day to Day site, and clicking "listen" near the top of the page...

Major thanks to Robert Smith for the heads up, and for producing a quality piece on podcasting.

  • It's not just iPod devotees that are creating and listening to Podcast..

    I've gotten a number of friends hooked on Insomnia Radio and they are loving what they are hearing, you have a great podcast Jason.

  • That's easily the WORST description of podcasting I've ever heard.

    It's cool and all that mainstream media is catching on to podcasting, but I think it may very well be the death of podcasting as we know and love.

  • Yes, I'm growing weary of the "you must have an ipod" description, and their opening introduction wasn't accurate, but let's face it: the exposure is good for ALL of us. That is undeniable.

    I for one am elated that some of the big players are taking notice.

  • I found the piece unimpressive. It gave the impression you need an i-Pod which doesn't help get people into 'casting. Also instead of exploring how shows like Green Dragon and Insomnia Radio are expanding new musical horizons, it gave another plug to that inane show that is so inexplicably popular on Podcast Alley!!!!

  • I dunno man, the exposure is great and all, but what happens when the RIAA starts podcasting?

    And as for the opening line.... "customized playlists," as well as putting the word "show" in quotes, really pisses me off.

    It's belittling the medium.

  • Apparently I am a bit biased here :-)

    But when I sit back and really listen to the segment, you're all right. It was very generic, and very misleading. (sigh)

  • Alright. I finally got around to actually listening to that to see if my complaints were based on anything. They were. I'm a lot more pissed off now.

    "AMATUER radio" "AMATUER podcasters"

    I'm a lot less pissed about the misleading part thatn I am about the "I'm better than you 'cause I'm at NPR!"

    Maybe I'm just getting a swelled head, but it doesn't seem like he's giving us any credit.

  • Deniz; I see where you're coming from. But the word "Amateur" has different meanings to me. IF we were professionals, there's a high chance we'd be rolling in the bling doing this :-)

    I know the piece wasn't drop dead perfect, but what I appreciate is the recognition.

    However, I'm still waiting for somebody to do a flipping INDIE MUSIC podcasting feature...

    By Blogger Jason, at 9:55 PM  

  • I guess you're right...

    It just seemed so insulting, especially towards the end when he was talking about how actual broadcasters are getting in on podcasting.

    I overreact and nitpick a whole lot.

    And yea, an indie music podcast spot would be nice.
