Nope, I'm not moving back to the States ;-) You may recall that back in June Jon Udell (and some others) had figured out how to build an RSS feed to receive episodes of This American Life that were already available for free on the web, but only in a streaming, listen while connected, format. Shortly after that, the good folks at This American Life asked those who had put together such feeds to take them down. It was all pretty amicable, but left us podcast-listening junkies out in the cold again.
Until this coming Monday, October 16th, at which time This American Life will begin offering a legitimate feed of their own. Huzzah! Thanks to BoingBoing for passing on the good news. Cool, I even notice on the TAL page that, "Note: everyone who paid for a
podcast subscription via Audible will receive a refund. You don’t have
to do anything; you’ll automatically receive the refund."
