Hi Nigel,
Podcasting has now become popular as an alternative way of providing \\\'radio\\\' type content that can be listened to whenever, wherever and as many times as the listener wants. The idea that a podcast can be produced by just about anyone with access to the Internet has generated a lot of interest in educational circles. In ELT, the appeal is not only in providing additional listening input for students. I have been telling my students about your excellent podcast. The Stories seem to go down well with my students as this is a new form of story telling to them and helps then concentrate on learning English in an interesting and entertaining way. The Mistress and Her Maid narrated by Josie Bloom was especially liked by my class. I have found my Students even exchanging some of your stories between their iPods as considered it\\\'s cool. D.

I live in Buenos Aires, and listen to your podcast, on the morning and afternoon drive to work. By plugging my iPod in to my PC it auto downloads relevant Podcasts, deletes those listened to and I then just plug the iPod into the car for those spluttering commutes., I think your podcast are cool interesting stuff, great, educational and the coverages of subjects is fantastic. I just listened to Josie Bloom reading The short story \"The Mistress and Her Maid\", written by David Allen. I really enjoyed the whole the story and production, congratulation to every one involved. Julieta Ginobili, Buenos Aires

Audio podcasts can be a powerful thing, especially when it is portable and private.
I love the fact that I can listen to one of your story when I want to or go back and enjoy the earlier programs. I sometimes have to stop listening in the middle of a story as I have reached work but know that I can continue to listen on the way home. Loved \"The Mistress and Her Maid\", written by David Allen.
