BBC says podcasting could be a revolution

According to technology analyst Bill Thompson, “It is easy to claim the revolution is just around the corner, but there might just be something in podcasting.” Thompson is a regular commentator on the BBC World Service programme Go Digital.

The quality of some of the podcasts I have listened to is certainly as good as many supposedly professional radio stations, and as the tools for finding and filtering what is out there improve we will inevitably see new ideas, new approaches and new names emerge,” adds Thompson.
