As we’ve been reading, one of the things that sets podcasts apart from radio broadcasts is the ability for the conversation to take place online, and one of the best ways to facilitate this conversation is to include the podcast on a blog. Further, we’ve learned, it’s beneficial to give the audience various options to participate, i.e. the ability to leave audio and video comments.

There are several WordPress plugins for audio and video comments – and I haven’t tried all of them – but of the ones I have tried, I like Riffly the best because of the way it displays on the screen. It’s only downside is it isn’t compatible with Apple’s iSight.
