Evil Genius Chronicles - Gordon Smith, the Iron Man of Podcasting is a good place to go for Podcasts. I've downloaded some software from doppler. So, now I can run the application and it automatically grabs rss-based audio feeds and puts them into my iTunes playlist.

Of course, I never really planned on using iTunes (since I have no iPod), but it seems pretty cool. Anyway, the next step is to take the mp3 files and sync to the Treo. Gonna need a pretty robust SD card for this. Regardless, podcast content is anything but commercialized at the moment.

Well, anyway, the WREK website has plenty of music posts. Including their "Just Jazz" segment. Georgia Tech public radio, my salvation for jazz in Alabama. Kinda sad.

SO... Gordon Smith's blog has figured out how to create "subscription" streams of the radio station's web content. Plus, he's just figured out tons of cool stuff. So, on my small little Blog, I'm kinda throwing meek props in his direction.

For further information on the iPodder craze, you can always get a gizillion google hits in a search. Or, just read up at ipodder's home page.
