Is this something you'd consider listening to if it were available on the Internet? Currently, the iTunes podcast list has several wine-related podcasts available, but nothing whisky-related.
Basically, a "podcast" is an Internet equivalent of a radio show. They can be as short as a couple of minutes or as long as an hour. If you have the right software (Apple's iTunes makes it almost automatic), your computer will automatically check for a new episode and download it as an MP3 file. You can then listen to it on your computer or transfer it to an iPod or similar digital music player.

And - I'll vote for Mark as El Presidente as well - ey, wait a moment, usually El Presidentes do have more choices to come to power than ordinary voting by ordinary people...
I know...but I don't have a brother to rig the election for me...
(oops, did I say that out loud? )
I don't want to be El Presidente, but thanks for your votes of confidence...
I'd be interested in tuning in to the occasional podcast, assuming that the contents were relevant and interesting.
(An interview with a distillery manager or brand marketing manager, for example, would be a great thing to tune in for)

That is indeed a good idea!
That's exactly what I had in mind...along with an occasional rundown of upcoming events, news on new releases...stuff like that...
(I'm much too far behind the times but I'll drown my sorrows with a couple of drams)
I don't even have a cell phone - but I do have an Ipod, although it seems I'm not able to do anything but wrong when upgrading the software....

You just need to make it easy for the people to use =)
Maybe it would even be possible to play a MP3 stream over a flash swf file (many have Flash installed already). And alternatively offer a link for those who have winamp installed, etc. Shouldnt be too hard to offer 2-3 options to listen to the same file. It's all in MP3 format if I understood correctly, not?
Anyway, good luck =)
- In your opinion, what makes a particular malt "good"
- go through and do tastings in depth, from the description of the malt, to the uncorking, to the pouring, nosing and tasting. Maybe with history of the particular malt, distillery, and what foods or situations it might be suited for
- An interview with David Broom or MJ?
- Cigars, and how they might be enjoyed with a dram
- Recommendations on how a person might start with SMSW and what are some of the common misconceptions about whisky, common things that newbies like me ask about, etc.
Thanks, I'm really looking forward to listening!
