So podcasting is great fun. There used to be some cool free tools like GCast that would allow the user to call in and publish a podcast directly to a blog or else where on the web. They all seemed to go out of beta and start charging.
So looking at Voice you can embed a voicemail message. I have not tried it yet but in theory one could record a message and then post that message as a podcast on their site.

Google Voice - Features
I have sort of rediscovered Google Voice. I have been using it since it's introduction. It converts voice mail to text and sends it as an SMS message and email. Makes it very easy to check voice mail. It allows calls to be made from the computer. New is porting where a mobile number can be used through the GV system instead of needing a wireless carrier.
Cool stuff. Check it out when you get the chance. Some things are a bit hinky. Being able to select all in the Inbox like in GMail is not a feature.

I got a new phone. My old one started being real hinky a few months ago and just kept getting worse. As a result I am looking at more of the new Google products and updating things. I need to update my blog layout and things here. Always makes me nervous to think about doing it and the possibility of losing things. So we shall see what happens.
