podcasting as a way for people in politically repressive countries (eek! I
almost wrote "companies" ;> ) to present their views. It was a fascinating
talk about using Web technologies for citizen empowerment.

Bill, have you tried picking up your feed with an podcast aggregator such as
ipodder? Does blogspot offer tips for enabling their RSS2 feeds for
