ABC Radio National podcasts

The ABC have announced plans to trial podcasting Radio National programmes. This is Good News. Up until now, they have provided live and “on demand” Real Audio streams of many programs, but this hasn’t helped those of us that wanted to listen while offline (e.g. on the train, or on a portable media player). It also forced you to use the godawful Real player.

But soon, there will be MP3s! It sounds like they are planning to provide both downloadable MP3s and an RSS “podcast” feed. Way cool!
