Podcasting integration with your content and RSS

Tendenci - includes full Web Site Podcasting
Web Site Podcasting means a way of getting audio content, typically mp3 files, from your site into the ears of your listeners. It describes streaming audio blogs (web log) that are easily synchronized with audio players like Apple's iPod although certainly not exclusive to Apple.

The beauty of podcasting from your site, the reason people are excited about it is that it is an easy way to share audio content. So if you go to a luncheon with a great speaker, your organization can record it and post the audio with the speaker notes. So you are not only sharing the speaker information, but you are also sharing the audio from the event quickly and easily.
