I first discovered podcasts when working as a copywriter. Podcasts were my key to getting through my day at a job I didn't really care for. At that point I had stuck to a few podcasts that were off-shoots of radio shows I already listened to on my regular FM radio. Then, after I moved out of the Twin Cities and had more difficulty getting a signal for my favorite radio stations, I began finding more podcasts on itunes. Today I looked around on PodcastAlley and found a number of podcasts on many different topics. It was easy to browse and easy to listen... even without downloading the podcast.
