Genealogy Guys Podcast - how I fell for two guys

For all of my non-technology-savvy readers, a podcast is a "digital media file, or a series of such files, that is distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and personal computers."

The host of a podcast is called a "podcaster". In this case, two podcasters -George G. Morgan and Drew Smith. The Genealogy Guys.

They introduce their podcast as the longest-running, continuous genealogy podcast in the world. Well, I'll take their word for it. In any case, I strongly recommend you to try listening to them. It's a relatively short podcast, which discusses every aspect of genealogy. This week, they talk about genealogical research myth ("My ancestors' names were changed at Ellis Island"; "Everyone with the same surname is related" "Naming patterns will solve all your brick walls." Last week they talked about newer "social networking" sites for genealogists.

It's a nice alternative for plain radio broadcasts.
