Like anyone else, time is a resource in constantly short supply. It was with great pleasure that I discovered IT Conversations. I've been grabbing shows via their RSS 2.0 Feed with Enclosures. In short, manually feeding my iPod every day.
I am evidently always late to the party, because others have been scripting their way out of this manual process. Podcasting is born.
I am trying out a variety of windows based utilities, currently surfing through the software linked at iPodder.
podcasting doesn't invert the time-space continuum, but does help me access additional content by leveraging drive time and inexorable hours mashed in a coach-class seat.
Again highly recommended.
