Podcasting Continues To Gather Momentum
FeedBurner today manages 1,750 podcasts via SmartCast. That is a significant increase from 750 at the end of 2004.

Is this impressive then? Not yet, and I remain a bit sceptical to the use of podcasting for business purposes. It will find it's place, no doubt, but the fact is that audio has been an option for years and it's never been a success on a larger scale.
Why should another form of distribution radically change that?
I'd love to be wrong though - I started my journalistic career as a radio reporter and podcasting could become good business for me... :-)
