According to a press release announcing Jody Colvard’s launch of the Women’s Podcast Directory, the best kept secret in podcasting is that from moms to news, women dominate the new revolution. Jody taught her first podcasting class in 2005, the same year the editors of the New Oxford American Dictionary declared “podcasting” the word of the year, defining the term as “a digital recording of a radio broadcast or similar program, made available on the Internet for downloading to a personal audio player.” Podcasting now extends to video and will make its debut in many 2007 car models. As our population trends into taking their media with them, our cell phones will become our main communication device, predicts Jody.
