Interesting podcast

I know I have several journalistic people on my friends list, so I thought I'd pass this along. John C. Dvorak is a technology journalist who also hosts a podcast called "Cranky Geeks". Generally it covers techie stuff, but this week's episode was a theme week covering journalism. His guests were John Markoff (Senior Writer of the New York Times), Gregg Zachary (Journalist for the New York Times) and Sebastian Rupley (who is on all CrankyGeeks episodes). They are covering topics surrounding journalism, including "the on going death" of newspapers, determining if bloggers are journalists, and how "news robots" are used -- and if they can replace journalists.

I found it interesting and a divergance from their normal talk and thought that you who are actually in the business might find it interesting as well. This is episode 131 and can be found here and is available in iPod, Quicktime, Windows Media Player, Flash, and MP3 (audio only) formats. It is approximately 30 minutes long.

Nope. Between Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, DL.TV, and CrankyGeeks, I'm lucky to get through the week!
