Podcasting less important than "IT Conversations"

I was working out, listening an IT Conversations interview with Joel Spolsky. It was interesting and passed the time.

It's wonderful that Doug Kaye interviewed Joel Spolsky, and it's wonderful that Joel was fun to listen to, it was wonderful that this MP3 was available on the internet, and that I had iPodder to automatically download it to me iPod, and of course, my iPod is wonderful.

But I realized this: I had been doing this "by hand" before Podcasting or iPodder existed. The far bigger deal then and now is that IT Conversations are making these great recordings and making them available to me. Podcasting is just a neat new distribution medium.

For all the talk and excitement around podcasting, there should have been at least as much devoted to sites like IT Conversation, which as far as I know is the only one of its kind.
