In a recent post, Walter Terry let loose on podcasting and said everything I haven't been able to articulate.
I've had mixed thoughts on podcasting for a while. When they're great, they're excellent, like the Tablet PC Show, because the hosts know how to lace information presentation with humor and camraderie. When they're bad, they're terrible, because as Walter alludes to it's so hard to skim a podcast for that nugget of brilliance.
Well enough of me: Go ahead and read Walter's funnily-scathing post.
