Will radio kill the boring podcast?
Pinsent Masons has added a podcast facility to its Out-Law IT and e-commerce law news service. Where Out-Law sets itself apart from other podcasts is instead of publishing a series of ad-hoc items, these have been designed as a weekly radio programme (think World at One or PM on BBC Radio 4 – in fact they are branded as Out-Law Radio) complete with a professional presenter, a summary of the latest news stories, various feature items and interviews – one of the most recent was with Billy Bragg on how he managed to get the social networking site MySpace to change its small print. The podcasts last about 12-to-15 minutes and a new episode is available every Thursday. Best of all the technology, including the audio streaming, works a treat and does not require third-party applications to be downloaded. Definitely worth visiting, even if only to gnash your teeth and say ‘I wish we’d done that first’.
