I listen to a lot of podcasts – from technical shows to shows on Harry Potter to science fiction shows. I download a new set of podcasts every morning and upload them to my iRiver. I then listen to them at work while I am programming.

The producers of the Escape Pd science fiction short story podcast have done something bad to their podcasts. Instead of picking up just the latest podcast from them, I am faced with downloading 40 or 50 podcasts that I have already listened to. I’m not very happy about that, as how do you separate the wheat from the chaff? I was lucky yesterday to recognize that one of those files was a new short story. I guess I will have to look at my podcast program and see if I can prevent the attempted download of so many files I have already listened to.
