Mobile audio - is it just for music??

I recently started to listen to the audio version of two of my favourite magazines - The Economist and New Scientist, and have been impressed by the convenience and quality.

I'm not a fan of the word podcast, and prefer to think of the medium as a new take on traditional radio journalism. So, with that in mind, Finextra has teamed up with the same people who are doing such fine work for the above magazines to trial an "on demand radio programme" for Finextra, where we review the news and trends over the past week,  in a convenient 20-minute package.

You can listen to and download our first programme here.

What do you think?

Are you sceptical like I was, or do you find that the audio format suits your lifestyle and information consumption habits?

A podcast without a dedicated RSS feed associated to it is not a podcast.

Without the feed, I cannot subscribe to it for automated download to my audio device. So, unless I have missed the RSS subscription link somewhere, the weekly Finextra audio file as it stands is useless for me.

Hi Olivier,

You didn't miss the feed link, it wasn't on the download page - an oversight on our part. It's now there if you'd like to subscribe.
