In Our Time MP3s

Good news of the day, via Ben Hammersly: the BBC are offering MP3s of In Our Time for download.

Over the years, I’ve found myself listening to more and more radio content on my iPod, especially when travelling, and have built up quite a collection of In Our Time episodes (rather laboriously, using iRecordMusic) and it’s a testament to the show’s consistent high quality that almost all episodes bear up to repeated listening (my frazzled lack of short- and long-term memory probably helps, too).

So, I hope folk respond well to the download trial - all the recent hullabaloo about Podcasting and iPodder has left me cold, simply because the Podcasted material available at the moment tends to be crushingly dull, unprofessionally produced and overly geek-focussed, but if the BBC expand this new service and offer up RSS feeds with MP3 enclosures, so that listeners could wake up each morning with hours of Beeb-quality listening automatically loaded on their iPods, I’d start looking for a way to pay my license fee twice over.
