Gervais, Podcast

So what’s more significant – that “podcast” has been declared 2005 Word of the Year by the New Oxford American Dictionary, or that Ricky Gervais has started podcasting?

“Podcast” is certainly my word of the year, since it has kept me in food and cigarettes, but I still have to explain it to anyone foolish enough to ask.

However, for the wider world of podcasting, at least from a UK perspective, having Ricky Gervais podcasting is going to attract a lot more attention (with any luck, anyway). I’ve yet to listen to his show, so I’ll check it out later. I’ve heard mixed reports.

I look forward to the day when I don’t have to explain podcasting. But my mother understands it. Sort of.
