Podcasting is rather nice, even for those of us who don't actually podcast. I just like downloading the audio file for offline listening. I've always hated non-live audio streams that could only be listened to in pseudo-live form. It'd waste bandwidth if you want to listen to it a second time. Not to mention that every major commonly used streaming media client program, every one, sucks at streaming.
But am I the only one who thinks the term 'podcasting' is rather silly?
