Author Dan Kennedy takes a closer look at the phenomenon, and in particular at the "inventor" of the podcast Adam Curry. Kennedy refers to another article about podcasting in Wired magazine, in which Curry shows the Wired reporter how a podcast is made. "You see how easy it is to fill up 10 minutes of MP3 space?" he says. "We just did 10 minutes. It’s easy. It’s easy. And people eat this shit up."
Kennedy remains civil about Curry's show: "it can be somewhat less compelling than its host might wish." But let's face it. It's boring as hell.
