Podcasts are PHAT! That's "PH!"

Lately, when I get online I spend the majority of my time looking at different podcasts. What are podcasts? I once heard a podcast described as "frozen talk radio." Basically podcasts are people who have put together these 5 minutes (or shorter) to 1 hour (or longer) talk shows that you can listen to. Some you can even watch. I have found a few series that I love to listen too, and can't wait to listen too. As I am gardening at work I turn on my ipod and listen, and learn. I almost feel smarter for the things I have been listening too. Be careful, once you get hooked on podcasts your ipod will fill up! No worries, once you listen to the podcast you can delete it and have more room for another. Most podcasts are updated daily, weekly, or whenever. I even bore my testimony to Jessie about podcasts, and SHE JOINED! (They have several Twilight Podcasts...Not a fan if you ask me???) They are so great to listen too, and even help the time fly by! Did I mention THEY ARE FREE!!!!

NPR: This American Life podcasts. Love 'em. Never miss 'em. Just go to www.thisamericanlife.org. They are what got us through so much driving between Utah and Indiana. By the way, we DID want to come visit you, but I was only there for 4 days, and Ethan had time to visit either you guys or Sally. Sorry, he picked Sally. Our next Utah trip will definitely include our Southern relatives.

Some of those other podcasts look cool. I will definitely check them out.
