Chapter 2. Jumping In > Finding Commercial Podcasts

Finding Commercial Podcasts

OK, so you have used your podcast aggregator software to scour the “airwaves” of cyberspace for the content that tickles your fancy the most. But the world of so-called free podcasts is just one portion of the equation. Although some people would disagree, I'm inclined to fit audiobooks into the podcast category, as well as periodicals that are routinely converted to audio format. As mentioned in Chapter 1, Audible.com is one of the forerunners of commercial podcasting, but if you look hard enough (and often, you don't have to look very hard), you can find commercial podcasts all over the place.

Following are locations where you can purchase podcasts and audiobook materials online. Although some of the content available at these sites is free, the majority is not. The upside is that the quality of what you are getting is professional, and the price is very reasonable compared with that of traditional purchasing pathways. (Audiobooks, for example, are much cheaper online than they are in a bricks-and-mortar store.) This section takes a look at the top five Web sites/stores/locations for pay-for-play commercial podcasts and audio entertainment.
