I think  having the podcast in segments will give direct access to each
individual podcast giving the listener the control to choose which ones
to listen. .

Subject: [bct] segmented or non-segmented podcasts

Same message as before, but the subject line is more precise.
Larry and list.  I have noticed that some of the last podcasts contain a
number of different podcasts all combined into 1 giant one.  For myself,
I would like to see individual ones instead of a bunch of them together.

Two reasons follow.

1.  If they were individual files, you would only have to download the
one you want to hear rather than a much larger file containing things
that might not be of interest to you.

2.  In a larger file, there is not a really good way to easily get from
one subset of the podcast to another.  True, you can skim through the
file with the bookport and place a bookmark at the beginning of each
part, but that takes a lot of time.

Those are just my opinions.  I would like it if people on the list had
the podcasts presented in the way most people want to hear them.  So, If
this is what people want, I'll come along for the ride, but I thought I
would bring up the issue to see what people thought.
Thanks all.
