Want to see a great example of a podcast audio tour?

The Friends of the Public Garden in Boston have launched a Public Garden Audio Tour podcast, a self-guided audio walking tour. The audio tour is available as a free download at the Friends of the Public Garden website, and as a podcast on iTunes. Visitors can also rent iPods at the Swan Boat ticket counter in the Public Garden.

“Many people walk through the Garden, but don’t know the secret stories about the place,” said Henry Lee, President of the Friends of the Public Garden, the nonprofit organization that helps care for the Garden. “This iPod audio tour is a new way to interact with the garden, to immerse yourself in its stories.”

The tour site features an interactive map, iTunes link and a direct download link. The audio tour looks at 18 different sites within the garden and features interviews and original music.

The audio tour site is iPod-centric, which may disappoint some visitors, but makes things very simple for iPod users.
