Video Overview of Huffduffer Podcast Catcher

Back in November I wrote a review of a great podcast sharing service called Huffduffer. Huffduffer is a simple, free, service that allows you to create podcast playlists and embed podcasts into your blog or website. In that post I gave some brief directions about how to use Huffduffer. Yesterday, Marshall Kirkpatrick from Read Write Web published a video tutorial about how to use Huffduffer. You can watch the video below, but I also recommend reading the review on Read Write Web.

Huffduffer - Easily Embed Professional Podcasts

Huffduffer is a simple, free, service that allows you to create podcast playlists and embed podcasts into your blog or website. Finding podcast content and developing playlists is a simple matter of using the search box. The real utility of Huffduffer is the ease with which you can embed a podcast recording into your blog or website. To do this simply select the podcast you wish to embed then find the embed code provided by Huffduffer in the lower-right corner of the page. Then just copy and paste the code in the same manner as you would use for a YouTube video. I've embedded a sample podcast from American Public Media below.

Mix Your Own NPR Podcast

NPR has offered their "mix your own podcast" service for quite a while now, but I hadn't revisted since its launch until today. I was searching for content to add to the side bar of my new teaching website, MrByrneTeaches.com, when I thought that instead of specifying particular podcasts and videos for my students, I would provide them with links to places where they can find academic and intellectual material on their own. Therefore the side bar of my new teaching website contains links to NPR's mix your own podcast, YouTube EDU, iTunes University, and TED Talks.

NPR's mix your own podcast service allows anyone to create their own unique collection of podcasts from NPR's library of thousands of podcasts. To use NPR's mix your own podcast service simply visit the page, name your podcast, select keywords and content, and then subscribe to your new custom podcast.

Applications for Education
Students can use NPR's mix your own podcast service to create a podcast that is both interesting to them and informative. You could also create a podcast of content related to your course and link it up to your classroom blog or website.
