A face for podcasting….
With its sparkly new studio, VNU has gone podcasting crazy and it’s a tremendous amount of fun.
One can only imagine what Denis Norden might be able to dig up from the VNU vaults, but we’ve already noticed some of the funniest (toe-curling) podcasts have been removed from the site.
Robert Jaques and Madeline Bennett give some fine examples of why print journos shouldn’t do broadcast, while Iain Thomson proves himself to be a beautiful mix of John Craven, a Radio 4 shipping forecast announcer and Ronnie Barker.
Just take yesterday’s example, where Iain’s headlines include:
“Quality of UK broadband standards are falling: customers are revolting.”
“Nintendo Wii dominates console wars: A third of US and Japanese homes will have a wee by 2011.”
Informs, educates and entertains that Thomson - give him his own show….
