Hi Greg, would you consider making the shows available as "enhanced" files? The majority of your topics seem to be pretty Public Library-centric, and often I'd prefer to skip over those; having topic "chapters" would really speed my listening. Of course if you're just throwing up whatever Talkshoe produces that's another issue, but thanks for the consideration.

Keep up the good work!

You pretty much hit it. I don't even have to throw anything up. It does it automatically. Lack of post-production is one of the central appeals for me of using TalkShoe.

Incidentally, I don't know of any free way to create an enhanced podcast on a PC.

Now if you want us to talk about more academic-oriented topics, you just have to suggest them (preferably using the del.icio.us tag unvocab). My environmental scan is pretty public library-oriented, but the usual crew of participants is actually pretty evenly balanced.

Thanks for listening.
