Pew asserted they we're correct. They are correct. Podcasting is not well defined. So if say a freerangelibrarian puts out a podcast, even a dumb under a minute podcast of herself singing happy birthday, and I simply download it and listen; well yes I've listened to a podcast. Adam Curry talked a little about the methodology on his, more famoust podcast about a day after I first read your comments. The Pew survey may be incorrect, but the methodology is as good and as valid as Nielson(I'm not sure how to spell this, but since I saw Gorman't comments, I always hope everything I put out on the net is rife with spelling errors) or Arbitron or any other statistical media rating service. 9 million people having done something once as a percentage of US adults is pretty small. Also information doesn't want to be organized; it just wants to be searchable. Listen to the podcast from IT Conversations by Clay Shirkey. Isn't it a little presumptious that we might doubt a survey because it says that we are part of a much larger group of people than we think.

"All of these terms--podcasting ..." While it's not my issue, some people are very proprietary over that term, and have strong feelings about letting others dilute it.
