Adam Curry's Podshow Network is officially moving into the UK. Podshow has been operating in the US for a while now, and enjoying some decent popularity and a little bit of scandal. (For the record, there's nothing scandalous about Podshow's contract - just a bunch of naive people screaming about nothing).
Curry is the right guy to open up a podcast network in the UK. He probably spends more time over there than in the US these days and has a great deal of experience with the UK podcasting industry.Curry also has the money and the connections to strike deals with the big guys like British Telecom.
I had a blog entry pulled up here where a UK blogger was writing about how it seems that many British podcasters feel that Podshow is their ticket to becoming a full time podcaster. My browser choked on me and I lost the blog so I can't link to it, but I agree with the blogger. I don't know if these guys are paying attention to the rest of the world, but if the US can't produce many full time podcasters with 300 million potential listeners, I don't know why the brits would think their 60 million population has a chance.
