Podcast supplementary material - a great example

Steve Rubel recently wrote about a new podcast devoted to cooking, called Gastrocast. The podcast itself isn't that terribly original an idea, but here's what is - the creators also post a set of photos at Flickr with each episode, showing step-by-step that item being prepared, which you can consult while actually listening to the podcast itself.

Brilliant! This is so brilliant, in fact, and so simple, that I'm literally kicking myself right now for having never thought of the idea myself. And what ways can you use complementary forms of communication to get your point across on the web more profoundly? How about audio commentary for the next set of vacation photos you post? Video clips embedded within text journals?
