I feel like for the last few months I’ve heard of at least a dozen people tell me about some Podcasting/phone service every day. Did you hear about “x?” There is this service called “y.” And the list goes on.
I’m not talking phones with MP3 players in them – I’m talking, access a Podcast over the phone. I.e., call a phone number, hear a Podcast, etc.
I don’t doubt that there are companies who are providing Podcast to phone services – but my question is this …
Is anyone really using them?
And when I say “use,” I mean regular habitual consumption. 2 to 3 a week type of thing.
It isn’t the per minute charges that make me question it – it’s the functionality of it all. Anyone who thinks ahead enough to call a phone number an go through a tree to hear the Podcast of his/her choice – it seems to me they’re they’re the type who would spend the money required to make it much easier – a Nano, MP3 phone, etc.
So, any “I get my Podcasts by telephone” types out there? Tell me your story.
