@melissaanelli @Variety @davewiner @adamcurry Back then it was almost easier to burn podcasts to CDs than it was to get them onto an iPod. A utility like JuicePodder (?) would copy downloaded files to iTunes to sync via 30-pin USB cable! It was a commitment to be a podcast listener.
@melissaanelli @Variety Wife and I started a Hawaii podcast in 2005 (inspired by @davewiner and @adamcurry geekery), but its spinoff focused on #LOST was a wild ride. Show stalking spoilers, cast interviews, first trips to #SDCC, a whole network of LOST podcasts. Novel then, now a staple of TV fandom!
