It is irrelevant, but I hate podcasts and refuse to listen to most of them. I can read and skim fast and can usually glean the useful bits from an article in a short amount of time as compared to listening to people drone on and one endlessly about some topic. Plus, I vastly prefer reading to listening. That is one reason I love email as my main communication tool! Have no idea what this Digital Citizen stuff is all about.

The full article is here. I have no idea whether the podcast is about the same thing.

Lol, I really agree with you. I have trouble with podcasts because it takes so LOOONG to listen to people talk about something that you're not sure, in the end, will have been worth spending the time on. And then, either you sit there and listen intently, or you try to listen while doing something else, like working. If I'm working, my attention strays from the podcast, and then they say something that sounds interesting, and I have to rewind it. Sometimes going through that process over and over during the cast. Bah. Forget it. Listening is good while driving or riding transit, if you have a long commute, but I don't have that.
