PodGuides.net is a new site that offers free PodGuides, spoken audio tour guides, that you can listen to on a portable MP3 player.
A PodGuide is the combination of a map (PDF) of a certain place and a series of audio tracks (mp3) which you can download for your iPod or other media player. Stops on the map are marked with a dot indicating the related audio track.
