Podcasting with Windows

I got myself an MP3 player last week, partly to listen to podcasts. RSS Bandit does support podcasts, in that it will show the enclosed MP3 file, but it doesn't download it. So I found Juice, which will download the podcast enclosures to a folder. Specify Media Player 10 to monitor that folder (Tools | Options… then Library tab) and set the sychronisation up. Now as soon as I plug in my T20, any new podcasts are automatically loaded onto it.

As to the T20 itself, it a great player, nice and small. I wanted to avoid Apple and Sony players because of the vendor lockin. The only thing I don't like, is the fast forward. It works fine to skip forward in a song, but on a 30 min podcast… when you just want the last 5 mins…
