The BIN Podcast-Episode 1

Welcome to the first episode of Briles information network. Podcast Central! Thats right the first episode of our new podcast central. What happened to the old one? I'm glad you asked! As many of you know, the bin has used blip.tv as its pod and video cast hosting agent for many years. You could access our files via blip.tv or use Itunes to download our casts to view. Recently, blip.tv has changed formats to a sitcom/tv episode format which the briles podcast were not. blip.tv stated in an email that our shows didn't meet the criteria for their new format and thus our membership was canceled. Along with this sudden cancellation went all of our files to include the rss feed to Itunes. Blip.tv gave us no notice to change the feed or to seek other arrangements. Although bad practice and down right aggravating, the bin has used this minor inconvenience to strive forward and create a new and exciting pod and video cast on internet archive.org.soon, you will again be able to download podcast and videocast on Itunes, from internet archive.org or from out brand new bin podcast central page house on the bin. Simply go to briles.net and click on podcast. From there you will be able to see all episodes in a nice format along with rss feeds to feedburner, Itunes, and to internet archive.org the bin is striving to bring you updated information regarding genealogy podcast! Remember our main mission is to promote genealogy research and the preservation of family history. Visit us at briles.net and we will see u on the internet!
