After publishing “The Internet Monthly” podcast on this blog for over 6 years, I’ve decided to call it a day and cease its publication. Fear not however, as you will still be able to listen to exactly the same content as a podcast elsewhere.
I first published The Internet Monthly podcast on my blog in December 2008 and have since published a further 72 episodes.
The podcast itself is syndicated content from a monthly podcast that I produce for a UK Internet Service Provider (ISP) Zen Internet, which was first published in June 2007, and continues to be so.
My thoughts for syndicating the monthly Zen podcast on my blog were that every month I’d be guaranteed of new content without having to spend hours creating original new material. Whilst it has undoubtedly worked in this respect, I’m now re-evaluating things and think the additional time I use to create these podcast posts could be better spent elsewhere, especially as I’m effectively repurposing someone else’s content just for the sake of it.
Why No More?
As these podcasts remain available via Zen Internet, I’m making unnecessary work for myself just for the sake of some “free” content, plus I don’t think this is really adding anything significant to my blog. The end of each month always seems to be a particularly busy time for me, producing the Zen podcast and my other PlantAdvice Gardening Podcast, so this is additional work and stress that I can do without.
How to Continue Receiving the Podcast
So, from now on if you want to continue receiving and listening to The Internet Monthly aka Zen Monthly podcast (and I hope you do), this is where to find it:

Thanks very much to Zen Internet and in particular their Managing Director, Richard Tang, for letting me syndicate their podcast on my blog and much thanks also to Richard’s brother Will Tang for letting us use his music on the podcasts.
