iConfess: Less than thrilled about podcasts

Today someone asked me if I'd listened to a certain podcast from CNET. I mumbled that I'd heard of it but hadn't listened yet.

The truth is, most podcasting leaves me cold. I love reading blogs (which I track using NetNewsWire), and I often look at video clips. But I have little motivation to spend 15 minutes listening to someone's podcast when I can read (probably skim) the same material in their blog in less than 5 minutes.

Sure, I'd devote time to listening to Garrison Keillor or David Sedaris podcast--but their performance skills are far above those of the average podcaster.

So, for the most part, I still want to get it in writing.
