Yahoo Goes Podcasting

Internet portal Yahoo today stepped into the podcast world as they unveiled the public beta of their Yahoo Podcasts site. The site uses Yahoo Search technology to find and subscribe to audio content.   The Yahoo Podcasts site, as the Yahoo Podcasts team explained on the Yahoo Search Blog, focuses on bringing podcasts to users through a search feature as well as a directory of categories. Podcasts can be sorted by most popular and highest rated lists, as well as editorial picks. A collection of community tools is offered as well to conduct ratings, reviews and tagging of interesting audio content.   Podcasts found through the Yahoo Podcasts site can be listened to via a web-based player, podcast software and desktop media players. Future features look to be personalized podcast recommendations and podcast publishing tools.
