On the bright side, Vogon is talking about moving to a high-speed connection here. It would be very welcome, especially since I found free podcasts of a professional journal he was interested in and downloading five separate feeds that were 15-30 minutes long apiece took an awfully long time on dialup.
I also subscribed to the Earth & Sky podcast because I don't always catch it on the radio. Now I'm off in search of more public radio podcasts and anything else that sounds sufficiently interesting. I've got my fingers crossed for WFMU to podcast Radio Thrift Shop sometime in the not-too-distant future.
I'm all ears (ha) to any podcasts you recommend.
