I now "get" podcasting

Until today I never really understood why Podcasting would be so popular. Sites like Odeo and iPodder have gained a lot of popularity, and perusing you can find a ton of podcasting information. But today, I GET it.

I'm in Seattle on a business trip an I decided to walk to the office from the hotel. It's probably about a mile walk and took 20 minutes. I had my iPod and I spun a little Pedro the Lion, Postal Service, and Third Day. However, as I walked I had the desire for some news of some sort. Sure I could've had a radio, but then I need two devices. It would've been nice to spin some MP3 news tracks. Hence podcasting. My bet is that podcast consumers are disproportinately urban, walking commuters.
