This year's MacGathering will feature a seminar on podcastiing taught by Shelly Brisbin. I'll bet that's going to be a well attended event and Shelly should have fun teaching it with her brand new MacBook :)
There's an almost insatiable hunger out there for beginning podcast information. An article I wrote months ago has recently been published on Sitepoint and in the first day there was over 3,000 page views of it and...get this...a reader rating of 10/10 for it.
Expos and conferences that offer podcasting information go a long way to legitimizing the field. I think podcasting is almost over the hump and is starting to be accepted as well as blogging is, but the more leverage it gets the better.
