Yahoo has announced that they will be closing their Podcast directory . Apparently there is no clear nor lengthy reason, their site simply reads: "Yahoo! apologizes deeply, but we will be closing down the Podcasts site on Oct. 31, 2007."  The service has been around for 2 years and allowed users to set up their own podcsting channel, search other podacsts and subscribe.

There were however rumors about Yahoo making some drastic changes in their entertainment department which includes shutting down Yahoo TV and Yahoo Music.  However these have not been confirmed yet.

Users of Yahoo Podcasts can try other podcasting directories after October 31, there’s , Pluggd and Podfeed

Honestly, I think Yahoo should be throwing a party for their subscribers, something like a Thanksgiving thing.  Anywho, that’s the web.
