Well, what I plan to do from now on is to edit the show notes for my
podcast in an external editor; I can either do this in my e-mail client
direcly or just insert the whole thing into my e-mail when finished.
Anyhow, I can mail my blog postings to a secret e-mail address for my
WordPress installation and it will post it for me:).  The recent
versions of WordPress support e-mailing blog postings natively; you just
have to configure it accordingly.

Now if you are satisfied doing posts as I described above, then many
text editers have HTML macro facilities so an anchor link can be created
by using those features.  Both emacs and Note Tab Pro are two such
editors that come to mind that support doing this.

When I looked at the resulting RSS feed from my WP installation, it
looked clean to me and should probably work well with the popular
podcatcher programs out there.  For me, feedburner, just took the RSS
feed and added some of the other fluff such as itunes tags and I think
something for Yahoo.
