rabble podcast network review



October 29, 2006

I'm not always the first to jump onto a bandwagon and although I've been looking at and subscribing to podcasts and video casts for over a year I haven't owned an iPod or mp3 player. I was downloading interesting documentaries and news sources, but more often than not didn't have time to listen to them.

I finally bought an iPod earlier this week and had to say how much more I am enjoying the rabble podcast network (rpn) shows I've listened to. I've been reading rabble.ca's articles since the beginning as we were hired to help set up/customize an open source application (APC-AA) for them.

I definitely am finding that the audio format is much easier to fit into my life (now that I'm getting regular updates to my iPod) than the print is. I've certainly benefited from some high quality stories that leave me feeling more aware of what is happening in the world.
