A Few More Poscasting Ideas

I'd like to add to Britt's post: 7 Ways Nonprofits Can Use Podcasts with a few that have cropped up at the ACS.

In Texas a  friend is focusing on traditional training with two recordings: "Training Volunteers" and "Recruiting Leadership Volunteers." It's meat and potatoes, but I'll bet that's two topics that NPOs always need. The training topics will be a series.
