Phonecasting.com launched its Web site today for the purpose of letting users create “phonecasting” episodes which can be listened to by others over the phone or as a download. Accounts are free for publishers.
The Phonecasting.com service works by having a publisher record a phonecast which can be made available in the Phonecasting directory by auto-generated RSS feeds. Subscriber options for dialup, download and streaming are available to web site members from a computer or mobile phone.
Phonecasting.com seems to have netted a few big name publishers already:
