Podcasting and Museums

Tomorrow, I’ll be giving a paper at the Digital Dialogues conference in the Victoria and Albert Museum. I may well re-record my talk and release it as a podcast here on Past Thinking, if people are interested.

Archaeology Podcasting Statistics

Just 4 months after publishing the success of Wessex Archaeology‘s Archaeocast, which had just seen 20,000 downloads, a check of the server logs shows 35,414 complete downloads of the podcast to date.

Podzinger: Searching Podcast Content

I have just found out about Podzinger, a new service that utilises voice recognition technologies to index the actual audio content of podcasts. It essentially transcribes your podcast, which is amazing. Their search interface is simple and uncluttered, and search results allow you to listen to the podcast right on the page.
