Artcasting: Museum-a-go-go

In addition to posting virtual museum tours and interactive art educational materials, museums are increasingly making their in-house audio tours - and special audio programming - available as free podcasts. Visitors can use the podcasts to listen on site or off, and subscribers can automatically receive feeds for new shows.

But it doesn't have to stop there, of course.... art educators and students can make their own artcasts to syndicate or use during their own museum visits. (Though some museum sites invite users to create and send in their own artcasts, I'm not quite sure what becomes of most of these.)

Museum podcasts has a nice directory of feeds you can subscribe to individually or all at once.
