Make magazine’s Phillip Torrone has posted an excellent tutorial on how to create enhanced podcasts.

Indie podcasters say that iTunes 4.9 has brought them new listeners, but that Apple is heavily promoting big-name podcasts while leaving out the grass-roots shows.

CNET News.com and The Tech Night Owl LIVE have both recently launched podcasts.

CitizenPod has released Lolla4Pod, a downloadable festival guide for Lollapalooza 2005, taking place at Chicago’s Grant Park on July 23rd and 24th.

“making the one-person, in-house shows harder to spot in a sea of media logos”

So how did people “spot” grassroots podcasts before iTunes 4.9? What has been lost?

Grassroots podcasts have more listeners now than ever before, yet they are complaining that big-name companies have stepped in too? That was inevitable.

Of COURSE bigger names appeal to a wider audience. Don’t blame Apple for that fact. But if the “little guys” haven’t LOST any audience—in fact, they’ve gained—then I’d say things are looking good all around.

It’s nice that Apple promotes non-corporate podcasts too—and they DO, I’ve seen them. If I was one of them, I’d wish for more free publicity from Apple too. But that doesn’t obligate Apple to give it to them.
