Jerry Del Colliano says “iPod, I Quit” and Rich talks about finding better ways to deliver and subscribe to podcasts.


In a recent post by Jerry Del Colliano on his blog, Inside Music Media, he says that he notices fewer students carrying iPods. He cites several examples and explains why they may not be using them like they did just a year or so ago. He also shows examples of how radio operators could learn from this generation and how they can come up with better ways to reach them.


Rich expresses some views on why he thinks podcasting is “falling short” in meeting the needs of the listeners/subscribers. He comments that there must be better ways to deliver the media to the potential consumer.
