RSS, Podcasting, and a Palm: help?
Still playing with my new Palm, and finding it nice.  The cheap FM transmitter I got in the Bag of Crap works nicely with it, too, so I can listen to audio files in my car with it.

So, now I need to find some audio files to put on my Palm to have something to which I can listen.  :)

Seriously, though, being an old fart, probably what I'd like to do is to download podcasts of a bunch of NPR/APR weekly programs.  Most of them (claim to) have RSS feeds.  So, I'd like a program that I could register all those podcasts with, which would then, at my bidding, download them from the various websites and prepare them for syncing onto my Palm.

So ... what tools out there will do this (at least partially)?  I've done absolutely no searching on this yet, but figured I'd ask for advice first.

You could try iTunes or something similar.

Are you running Linux? If so, I'd try amoraK.

Sorry ... Windows systems here.

I suppose I could try iTunes, but was hoping for something free. (Yeah, I'm cheap.)

Isn't the download for iTunes free? I'm not sure...


PS: Might be a good time to try Ubuntu or any other flavor of Linux. AmoraK is really nice. :-D (Says the chick in Windows right now cuz her modem stopped working under Linux and she's too lazy to muck with it right now...)

Sorry for the reply to my post, but iTunes is free.


Anyway, the software is free...

Also, WinAmp might work.
