Podcastconsultant.net : Excellent podcasting resource

At Barcamp2 Boston in March I met Adam Weiss. He creates 2 podcasts himself and shares his podcasting knowledge on his website and as a consultant.
See: podcastconsultant.net

I visited Adam at his studio in the Museum of Science a couple of weeks ago and we talked about all things podcasting. He has broad knowledge of podcasting and is very practical and down to earth in his solutions and recommendations. Highly recommended if you're looking for a consultant.

(Next one probably TEDGlobal 2007 in Africa.)
