Take a look at Podblaze

I recently learned of a local company (Durham, NC) that is offering Podcasting services. Podblaze (http://www.podblaze.com) offers a directory of podcast programs, though it is not yet very rich, and I wouldn’t recommend it, given Podcast Alley, Podcasting News, and Podcast.net.

The service does offer a free listener account, which enables you to, among other things:

  • Access and listen to all your favorite podcasts from one page,
  • Use a “cool” flash media player — with over 10 different skins,
  • Listen to any podcast at your leisure from any computer, and more.

The listener tool is intriguing, though it is little more than an online version of iTunes or Media Player. However, for some people, a web interface may be ideal, especially for roaming teachers who can not take their computers with them.

Podblaze also offers podcasting services for those interested in establishing their own programs. It appears geared explicitly to the corporate community, but I have e-mailed them for additional information that may be useful to educators.
