Podcasts good or bad?
I listened to many of Steves podcasts and i like most of them. However i just watched the following video were Steve tells the audience to ONLY keep text on their blogs.

But Steve makes podcasts also. So there seems to be a contradictory message.
I plan to make blog with both written and audio content (interviews with interesting people). In the video Steve say people are less likely to download an audio file then to read a text. But with a podcast no downloading is neccesary. You just stream it.
Are there any good advice about things to think about when interviewing people face to face with a recorder? I googled but couldn't find any. I plan to simply ask interesting questions and to not insult them.

Why not do both? Put up podcasts and transcripts of the podcast. (Many times I've wished Steve did this, so I could Google a particular thing he said. ).
One tip I've picked up about interviewing: Only ever ask one question at a time. Even professional interviewers sometimes ask multiple questions at once (eg. "What is your party's policy on that and what do you think about the opposition party's comments on it?"). - and without fail only one of the questions gets answered.

That was a 5-minute clip from a 90-minute talk for a group of speakers. The main idea is that plain text is a more effective traffic-building tool than audio. Audio is more expressive, but it has a lot of disadvantages in the area of building traffic.
This may change over time, but that was the state of affairs when I gave this talk in 2007.
