Casting about for podcasting news

I wrote a few weeks back about “plawdcasters” — lawyers who have podcasts — and I later posted this follow-up. Via Bag and Baggage comes word of another lawyer/podcaster, Gary A. Kendra of Detroit, whose new blog Adventures in CyberLaw will discuss issues surrounding the convergence of law and technology, primarily through podcasts that will contain discussions and interviews on emerging legal issues surrounding advances in information technologies and the Internet.

Meanwhile, Ken Kozlowski of Ohio Law (a blog I wrote about last month) writes that ASCAP is now offering a license to podcasters for musical performance rights on their shows.

For a good overview of podcasting in general, see “Podcasting” Lets Masses Do Radio Shows, by AP technology writer Matthew Fordahl. Here’s a teaser:

“After getting a taste of the radio business in college, software designer Craig Patchett never lost his interest in broadcasting. But without a job in radio, it seemed likely to remain one of those unfulfilled passions — until something called ‘podcasting’ came along.

“Now, Patchett’s creating shows and sending them out to the masses every day — not over the airwaves to radios but over the Internet, from his personal computer in Carlsbad, Calif.”
