Just got an email from Ken Carroll, the brains behind an online podcasting and tutorial service that teaches you Mandarin Chinese. ChinesePod has been named one of the Top Ten Podcasts for 2006 by Time Magazine. Kudos to Ken, who is based in Shanghai, for such a clever and engaging idea.

Again, with the publication of The Corporate Blogging Book in Chinese, I am hoping to get to Shanghai in 2007. So Ken, count me in as a new customer.
