Podcast feeds on Infotrac

From Library Stuff:

Wowza! The good folks from It's All Good point us to the great news. From the press release:

'Thomson Gale, part of The Thomson Corporation (NYSE: TOC; TSX: TOC), announces the addition of podcast feeds to InfoTrac on Thomson Gale PowerSearch and its Student Resource Center, Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center and History Resource Center databases. Weekly presidential radio addresses by George W. Bush from January 2005 to the present will be podcast beginning today. New presidential radio addresses will be added weekly.'

'While this addition marks the first podcast ever loaded to Thomson Gale reference databases, the company will add more podcasts in the coming months. Podcasting is included in Thomson Gale database subscriptions.'

Ok Thomson, here's a challenge for you. Let users record their own comments and have the ability to upload them to the relevant articles in Mp3 format so that other interested users can download them and learn from others. It'll be the two-way street library database that I've been dreaming about.
