Today, Blogger Founder Evan Williams will unveil his newest venture: Odeo.
Odeo is an all-in-one podcasting application which is said to make the creation, finding, organizing and listening to digital audio files as easy as Blogger made blogging.

Williams predicts the adoption rate of podcasting will mirror that of blogging which grew from nothing in 1999 to 7.3 million today.

Already, there are close to 4,000 podcast available. Evan tells the story of how he came up with the idea for Odeo on his blog.
