Casting the Net Podcast
Sean FitzGerald & Stephan Ridgway from the national Australian EDNA network. This podcast appears to be their annual, as they made one last year and then with a long,long break due to many tasks. Sean & Steph are promoting audio Odeo notes, and on their Blogger blog , they've included a direct button for delicious tagging. I've not yet listened to all of this podcast, but thought I like to explore & promote the easy going format using a standard blogger blog combined with Odeo audio comments.
