Podcasts During Commutes

I personally think podcasts are one of the greatest things since sliced bread. For the past few weeks (since I got my iPod), I have been downloading audio news in the morning and afternoon for my commutes to and from law school. I found this to be a great way to use my time on the bus to catch up with news, thus killing two birds with one stone.

However, now that I am at my internship for the summer, I can’t download my news as easily. I am not supposed to install programs on my computer at the firm, so I can’t download my podcasts there. And I do not use my computer every night where we are living, so I can’t depend upon downloading them in the mornings or evenings.

I have to wonder if anyone is in a similar situation. I wish my iPod could connect wirelessly and update its podcasts, thus removing the need for a computer. That would rock. But then it would not have cost so little (it’s a 1 GB Nano, by the way).

For a great intro on podcasts, and why you should listen, check out Knowledge Hack: Consume Podcasts (Lifehacker.com).

Do you have any solutions for the downloading dilemma? Leave a comment or drop me a line.

    Hi Andrew- One trick would be to use http://podcasts.yahoo.com while at positions where you don’t want to download anything, that is, if you can actually CONSUME them at work. It won’t solve the iPod issue, but will at least get you informed based on where you are.

    Other than that, I haven’t heard of wireless podcast updating just yet. Killer app in the making.

    I’m glad you liked my piece at Lifehack.org

    Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate the pointer of podcasts.yahoo.com. However, I don’t really have time to consume the podcasts at work. That’s what I wanted to use the iPod for – consuming them on the train to/from work.

    Take care,
