I've got a long drive south tomorrow for work so I've just downloaded some scuba podcasts from Pod Diver Radio using iTunes. For those of you not 'iPod'd up' podcats are amateurish radio shows that you can download and listen to on your iPod.

I'll be using my iPod with my iTrip radio transmitter. Haven't listened to any of them yet, don't want to spoil the excitement. Bit worried about it being full of US BS though. Which got me thinking..............
What if the list I had downloaded had been a YD Podcast:
[*]David A's Galapogos trip report.[*]Treasures of the Kyarra.[*]Mr T's roundup of this week's diving news.[*]Mark's Visit to the Chamber.
Had a look at how to do it and it's not that difficult. Somebody fancy a shot?
I've had a look on the site and for the life of me can't find the downloads. I use IPodder (http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php) to manage my subcriptions to various free podcasts I download regularly (using XML). Does this site offer free downloads and can you provide a link to them?
Jag, I haven't used anything other than iTunes Music Store yet. It's there if you do a search under the word scuba. Don't get too excited though the first 5 podcasts weren't very intersting. There was an interview with an underwater photography expert that was OK. This chap has got some really annoying kids.
I'll let post again if it gets any more interesting.
Thanks JAG, I'll have a pootle over to the site and look for these Diver Radio podcasts then.
If you are interested, Chris Moyles, Chris Evans and Tim Lovejoy provide "Best Bits of" podcasts of their shows, these are the main ones I download on a weekly basis. If you need further info, just ask.
