Should professors podcast their lectures on-line?

John Palmer, the Eclectic Econoclast, wonders whether he should podcast his lectures on-line; be sure to scroll down to his point #7.  Here is a recent article about podcasting university lectures (who owns the rights? who should own the rights?).

A few weeks ago, Russ Roberts at Cafe Hayek asked whether there was much demand for economics podcasts.  Being excessively terse by nature, I feel ill-suited to the podcast medium.  And I fear that podcast lectures would make some of my students stay home and also would make me more self-conscious in class.  But what do you all think?  Comments are open.
