Just next to where I'm sitting today, we've got podcasting training going on for the Estates Gazette, New Scientist and ICIS Heren teams, in our central London offices. It's all in the capable hands of Ewan Spence (who has made the odd appearance on this blog before), and going rather swimmingly, from the sounds coming from the room.
Podcasting is one of those things that feels like it has sneaked its way onto the plateau of productivity on the Garner Hype Cycle, and thus everyone has stopped talking about it as something special and exciting. It's a core part of my working day, as I listen to podcasts on my commute to and from work, using the time to catch up on the latest news and thinking in the areas that affect my work.
There was an interesting article published on GigaOm yesterday looking at the development of TWiT, one of the most successful podcast networks out there. Much to learn there, I think. Interesting video, too…

Clean layout, easy subscribe links for any service you could think of, and a nice integrated player. This is the way to do it.

First of all, we have a blog for MIPIM 2009 up and going, albeit in basic form. MIPIM is the huge property trade show that happens in Cannes in France annually. Popular property industry rumour suggests that it brings more money to the town than the film festival does. It'll prove a fertile ground for the EG folks to experiment with, I'm sure, but for now it's given over to two members of the industry who are riding to Cannes.
Also just launched is the first episode of the Estates Gazette podcast, produced by EGi's multimedia reporter, Helen Roxburgh, with a little help from Mr Big Biofuel Blog. It's not in iTunes yet (give us a week or so), but you can snag it from the Estates Gazette podcast site.
Oh, and one of my colleagues bought me a belated blog birthday cake:

However, the meaty stuff kicks off at around 43 minutes in, as he starts talking about the reaction of journalists to Twitter and moves onto the relationship between the web and our culture. Mach to agree with, and much to provoke thought.
You can grab it from iTunes.

Anyway, deeply tired and geeky ramblings over on the Twisted Nether Blogcast, or you can snag it in iTunes (it's episode 20).

Peter Whitehead, FT Digital Business Editor, said that they discovered over time that podcasts can't be repackaged content from the existing outlets, but something in its own right. Low quality "office chat" or high quality, radio-like atmosphere? Going for the latter, but a long way yet to go.
Trevor Dann, director of the Radio Academy: Podcasting leading the radio insustry. The FT's content is radio, delivered by podcasting. Once you include video, you lose portability — that's the great strength of radio, it's a secondary medium. You can do something else while listening to it.
Peter: not dangerous, not doing live, another channel to distribute our content. The listeners are niche audiences, but very valuable. iTunes putting FT logo on their podcasting homepage quadrupled number of downloads instantly.
Trevor: used to licensed, governed radio. The internet is a fantastic opportunity to converse abouit subjects with audiences. Radio has to be impartial. Podcasts don't. The audience won't want glorified adverts, they want authenticity.

At moment difficult to monetise. Will come. Might be slower than we'd like.
Time for closing drinks, I think.
