Political Parties Podcasting

If the last federal election here in Canada was the dawn of the “blog campaign,” this one brings podcasting into the mix. So far there are signs of two parties at it:

Only the Conservatives actually have podcasts so far. And calling them “podcasts” is perhaps correct only in the strictest “using RSS to deliver audio” meaning of the word, as the content appears to be “Stephen Harper giving speeches.”

No sign yet of Greencasting or NDPcasting.

By the way, where is Shawn Murphy’s campaign website? It has been 404 all week, displaying “No pages are found on the rootlevel!” Surely someone can figure out how to make it say at least “coming soon.”

No, that is Shawn Murphy’s MP site, not his campaign site.
