could you append the audio file in the rss.

Hey can you get this on listen by google just wondering cause i downloaded listen but cant find this on there and android central did rate it as number 1 in podcasting

Might take a day or three for the feed to propagate out, but, yeah, it works just fine in Google Listen. Just add it from the desktop site.

Great inaugural podcast, but I'll push back on the "Flash on mobile doesn't matter" comments. Not everyone needs Flash on their smartphones, but hearing pundits reduce Flash to YouTube and annoying ads is getting a little old. Most embedded non-YouTube video is in Flash. I subscribe to courseware that's delivered in this format (usually on Flowplayer), and some of my favorite hands-on video on SPE sites have used Viddler. And no media format will spare the web from annoying ads.

Even if HTML5 were ratified tomorrow and every publisher suddenly standardized on MP4 and h.264, that wouldn't change the backlog of legacy content on the web. It's the same reason why MP3 is still around after Apple popularized AAC.

If anything, the growing popularity of widescreen format phones with "real internet" browsers has increased the demand to support the most frequently embedded video format on the web.

YOU HAVE A PODCAST! YES! Great job guys. Phil, you are awesome.

weehooherod says:

It was very clever how you guys asked everyone what their favorite podcatcher was directly before the premier podcast.

Great show! I came from blackberry to the Droid (I do use Google for everything after all) and was a little disappointed to find no podcast here! This is like an answer to my secret prayers.

Interesting, informative, and a d-mn fine listen. (with Google Listen, ironically enough!)
