I do not use a podcacher at this time because I don't find the time  
to do podcatching anymore ever since the headphone jack on my pk  
stopped working and I can't really take them on the road too much  
anymore to listen to privately. but I am intertaining the thought of  
trying it on the mac that is why I asked. and I'm just curiously but  
who gave you the odd idea of the vo not having an osm? do you think  
freedomscientific came up with that? sorry to tell you but even  
outspoekn had an osm back in 93
