Someone wrote to me asking if I have examples of companies integrating podcasts into their mix of technical communication deliverables.  If you know of any, please let me know in the comments to this post. Here's what come to mind:

I wish I could think of more examples where companies are starting to use podcasts in their mix of technical communications. I think screencasts and Captivate videos are more prominent for technical instructions. Podcasts aren't very good at delivering step-by-step technical information. Concepts are where podcasts excel.
You might ask the guys over at for some examples, or also email the Podcast Academy folk. Personally, I think every company should have a podcast on their product (if it warrants it). I know Madcap recently announced integration with audio content such as podcasts. That surprised me a little — I wasn't aware that there was even a demand to start integrating podcasts with technical help content.

Please let me know if you find any other examples.
