Since the show number 60, it is no more possible to download directly the podcast from thepmpodcast.com, which is a podcast about Project Management. That could be surprising, but I am a little interested in PMing, without, nevertheless, wanting to be a project manager. So, Cornelius Fichtner decided to publish his podcast only by subscribing to the RSS feed.
Of course, there is still a way to play it directly in the web page using the Flash player, but it is far less convenient.
For me, it is a pity, because I do not have my aggregator every time with me (on the laptop, the tabletPC and the desktop) so when I just want to download a show, I just can't. And I think it is a feature that a podcast must have with some others like a torrent for example. Then the question is : Why limiting the possibility of downloading a podcast ? It may cause less downloads and limits the spread of this podcast, no ?
The perfect examples are podacasts coming from Pwop Production, publishing the .NET Rocks! show and the Hanselminutes one. That are the podcasts I listen to regularly, because of the content and the quality of the shows and they offer many, many ways to download them, along with some other goodies, like the transcripts.
