Yes, I've heard good things about the Podcast Pickle from Scott
Fletcher's Podcheck Review.  I haven't spent a lot of time around
directories much but may give the pickle a taste for sure.  Thanks for
the tip.  Another directory is Podnova but I don't recall seeing a
disabilities category over there either.  I was kinda disappointed with
Podnova's selections the last time I looked.  In fact, I couldn't find a
current URL to the Gillmor Gang podcast when I was there before; I ended
using Podcast Alley to find it instead.
