Podcasting as a medium is becoming increasingly popular, as evidenced by this micro podcast platform. However, one complaint some have is finding the time to listen to lengthier podcasts. Out Loud gives podcasting the Twitter treatment, by enabling people to record and listen to sound byte-sized audio content.
The service not only gives people the opportunity to hear the voices of others, but also to share their own. Instead of a 140 character limit though, Out Loud has a 20 second cap -- just enough time to get a thought out. This will surely become another way for aspiring comics to tell jokes as well.
The micro podcast platform also lets you react to the user-generated content (called 'Out Louds') by liking, commenting and even sparking a verbal conversation.
