“Quick and Dirty” podcasts are neither


NutritionDiva To continue our reporting on content mills (Amy's excellent takedown of eHow and others of that ilk and my post about About.com), I'm happy to report finding a website that looks for all the world like a crappy content mill but isn't.  

Here's my review on a new blog that isn't about gardening at all.

But back to gardening.  I notice on Quick and Dirty absolutely no gardening content – so how about it, gardening podcasters or podcaster wannabees?  Their podcasts are featured on iTunes, they sell related books, and somehow this looks like a business model that's working.
