I got an invite to Odeo last night and I have to say it’s pretty slick. As far as tools for finding and subscribing to podcasts it’s the best I’ve seen. Podcasting has always seemed a bit lame to me, perhaps it was just the tools that were available. The audio creation portion still isn’t done yet, this is the part that I think will be key. Having a good interface to find and subscribe to audio feeds is great, but having an easy way for people to produce audio feeds will be even better. From what I’ve seen so far, this service is going to be very slick. No word on pricing yet but I’m guessing that the business model will be to charge people to produce/host podcasts. I’m skeptical about what price people will pay to podcast. I’d bet that it isn’t very high — unless odeo sees their main source of revenue coming from commercial producers.
