(I’m now pondering the difference between an article and a story.)
Movie studios are posting single clips as podcasts. The worst offenders:
- Underworld — 1 MP3, last updated in April
- Street Fighter — 1 MP3, late updated in late June*
- Fired Up — 1 MP3, last updated in late May
- Just Not That Into You — 1 MP3, last updated early May
- Harry Potter — 1 MP3, last updated in late June*
- Angle of Death — Award for worst offender! TWO feeds, each with 1 file.
I’ll concede it’s possible that the feeds with one file posted recently could send out more stuff in the future.

Hi, Mignon. I’ve been listening to GG and most of the other Q&DT podcasts (that pertain to me) for a while, now, and just started listening to this one, as well.
I have a suggestion which I hope you’ll take in the constructive way I mean it: Could you slow down just a tad? 🙂 You were breaking speed limits while I was driving….
I was thinking the same thing after I finished recording. It felt fast to me too. I must have had too much coffee or something.
And don’t worry; I’m not going to “bing” anymore either. 🙂
