    We should do a weekly/montly BYC Podcast. It could contain some information about caring for birds, a question/answer portion, forum information etc...

    Quote:Perhaps "google is your friend" but you are certainly not mine. The computer at work here has that blocked. Thank you very much for your sarcasm.

    Podcast
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A podcast is a series of digital media files, usually digital audio or video, that is made available for download via Web syndication. The syndication aspect of the delivery is what differentiates podcasts from other files accessible by direct download or streaming: it means that special software applications, generically known as podcatchers (such as Apple Inc.'s iTunes or Nullsoft's Winamp), can automatically identify and retrieve new files associated with the podcast when they are made available, and that these files can be stored locally on the user's computer or other device for offline use. This is done by the podcatcher accessing a centrally maintained Web feed, which lists files associated with a certain podcast.

    Like the term broadcast, podcast can refer either to the content itself or to the method by which the content is syndicated; the latter is also called podcasting. A podcaster is the person who creates the content.

    The term is a portmanteau of the words "iPod" and "broadcast",[1] the Apple iPod being the brand of portable media player for which early podcasting scripts were developed (see history of podcasting), allowing podcasts to be automatically transferred from a personal computer to a mobile device after they are downloaded.[2] Despite the source of the name, it has never been necessary to use an iPod, or any other form of portable media player, to use podcasts; the content can be accessed using any computer capable of playing media files.[3] As more mobile devices other than iPods became able to synchronize with podcast feeds, a backronym developed where podcast stood for "Personal On Demand broadCAST."[4][5][6]

    That might be helpful.
    But couldn't that just be an addition to the Newsletter?
    That actually might be helpful to new members or unregistered people though.
    Great Idea!

    I like the idea. A few times we even thought about doing member interviews and recording them for everyone to hear, but it fell by the wayside as it didn't seem like there was a lot of interest.

    If there is more interest and if there are peeps that want to run with this, that would be cool.
