Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society Podcasting Grant Falls Short
Here's the deal. The Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society is offering a grant to Women Comics/Podcasters. Interesting, yes. Laudable, yes. Praagmatic, no.

The Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society (J LHLS) is pleased to offer three grants for one year of 100 MB of webstorage space each to three women comics podcasters. Grant recipients will also receive two hours of free consulting on podcasting techniques and specifications from Lene Taylor of the I Read Comics podcast.

To apply, please produce a fifteen to twenty-five minute long podcast on comics in mp3 format and either email it to or mail it on a CD to...

While I'm all for promoting anything podcast-ey, I think this society should stick to books. 100MB of web space is nowhere near enough space to hold a year's worth of podcasts. Even the 1-minute How To podcast would require a couple of hundred MBs annualy.  Heck, the fifteen to twenty-five minute portfolio podcast they're asking for would push 10MB if it was encoded at a decent rate. And finally, a 100MB of webspace has virtually no monetary value at all. There are hundreds of web providers out there who provide more than that for free and don't  have a competition process tied to it.

Whoever put together this little package probably had the best of intentions, but they're clearly completely unfamiliar with podcasting. I sense some band-wagon hopping going on.

Update: Even odder, the society seems to know that podcasts can be 15MB in size:

J LHLS is offering this grant because the webspace to host mp3 files - which are usually over 15MB each - is the one economic obstacle* to doing a podcast.
