Podcasts are audio files that you can listen to on your computer or download to a portable audio device. Podcasts can be posted on a blog or website and only require a microphone to produce, which is part of the good and the bad of podcasts. On the good side is a new blog with podcasts from fellow private investigator and PI News Link reader, Scott Stys. The Curbside Investigator is a good example of podcasts as a savvy marketing tool that is also informative and entertaining. And if he adds me to his blogroll I might add him to mine!
