Buzzwire is a Denver based mobile startup that streams multimedia content (mostly podcasts) to your mobile phone.

There are a variety of mobile podcasting services out there Podlinez and Fonpods (deadpool) are two we've covered. However, these services have emphasized backwards compatibility by playing podcasts on specific phone numbers.

Instead, Buzzwire relies on your dataplan, playing lists of media through your mobile browser. Creation and management of these play lists can be handled through their (somewhat ugly) website on your desktop browser. You can either add in content from their library of exiting podcasts to lists or upload your own. It works well on my iPhone, playing audio and video through the Quicktime player.
