This is a brief overview of Podcast Junkies. Born out of a visit to the New Media Expo conference, I thought it would be create to start a show that focused just on that medium. And so, Podcast Junkies was born, or as I like to say, it's "the pre-eminent (nice word, huh?) podcast for aficionados, connoisseurs, fans, proponents, and yes, junkies of all things podcast.
