Ben Metcalfe Blog goes all RebotCast

Ted Gilchrist, creator of the fantastic BBC News Rebotocast text-to-speech podcast service, has created a similar service for my blog.

Rebotcast Reads Ben Metcalfe Blog takes my RSS feed and converts each post into speech. FeedBurner is then used to wrap it up into a podcast feed.

Subscribe via RSS or add to Yahoo! Music Engine or Apple iTunes.

Thanks Ted for setting this up! 🙂

(I’m sure Ted won’t mind me saying that he’s running this as an “unsolicited unofficial service” and although I think it’s great, I can’t personally take any responsibility for it’s accuracy or timeliness.)
