Community Guy Podcast #2

Jake at CommunityGuy.com has posted his second podcast. I'm really impressed with Jake's podcasts. The sound is clean, his voice is great for the medium and I get into the subjects (especially when Common Craft gets a mention :).

Being new to podcasting, one of the things that I'm learning is that I like shorter ones. If I have 30 minutes to listen, I'd rather have 3-10 minute podcasts than one 30 minute one. You can't skim a podcast- you have to listen to everything.

Something we discussed about this at the Blog Business Summit is that it's impossible to link to a particular part of a podcast (like a permalink)- they are all or nothing.

One of these days I'm going to have to give it a try.
