Podcast support in next version of iTunes

Podcast support in next version of iTunes:

Over at O'Reilly Radar, Tim O'Reilly details a presentation by Apple's Steve Jobs at the Wall Street Journal's D Conference where Jobs discusses ipodder like features coming to iTunes. I especially liked his Wayne's World comment. The aspect of podcasting that interests me is the time shifting of content I already listen to.

I'm currently using NetNewsWire to subscribe to podcasts from shows such as Science Friday and Tech Nation. NetNewsWire 2.0 does a very nice job with enclosures and I can scan the RSS feed of a particular show and choose to download podcasts as I'm browsing my feeds, and they are automatically entered into my iTunes library. Will be interesting to see how Apple rolls this functionality into iTunes.
