capstone of a good short series on podcasting for education. I've listened to a lot pof podcasts over the years and can attest to Michael Hanley's observations about the sort of speech pattern that is "most apparent when a podcast has not been designed, planned and scripted properly." Filled with pauses, digressions and more pauses, the listener can hear the speaker searching for words. The key to good podcasting is planning. You can't fake it - not without a great deal of expertise and preparation. Listen the examples - they make the point better than I can.
