A friendly reminder, and some news...you can subscribe to Hanselminutes, my weekly Podcast with Carl Franklin within iTunes. If you have iTunes installed, just click here.

Here's the main feeds:

And, for the news. By popular demand, and expanded bandwidth, you can now see the last 20, yes TWENTY, Hanselminutes shows within iTunes. So, go stock up for the holidays.

One other thing, we're looking for sponsors for Hanselminutes to help pay for the bandwidth (which is crushing). If you're a technology company or ISV who usually does magazine advertising, consider advertising on my podcast. It's a very cost effective way of reaching literally tens of thousands of hardcore geeks. Email myself or Carl for details.

Scott, For info, I subscribe to the BitTorrent feeds in iTunes using a little utility called iTorrent (http://iTorrent.cc) that acts as a proxy between iTunes and the BitTorrent feed. It means I get the speedy downloads *and* the iTunes integration (such as the podcast menu, automatic bookmarking etc.)

You might want to try talking to CacheFly. They have what I think is pretty cheap bandwidth, but they also sponsor and host the Diggnation mp3's.

They're already sponsoring techy stuff, so maybe they'd be interested in sponsoring you as wel?

Hi Scott, will PWOP provide transcript for your every Hanselminutes show? I am waiting for the #25 transcript, but it seems stopped at #24 for quite a long time. I wonder that PWOP just provided a "DEMO" for their transcript service (a 24-transcripts demo? oh! how lucky I am...), or they have special schedule for transcript making.
Forgive my poor English, and you can see why I need transcript, ha!

Scott, I started listening on the commute two weeks ago. I'm halfway through the backlog and I love it.

I was just wondering, as the Internet's tech tools wizard, and an advocate of doublespeed audio, do you know of any good and (preferably free) tool to transcode mp3 files to doublespeed for players (like car cd/mp3 players) that may not have a doublespeed function built in? I didn't see a commandline arg for lame that would do this... maybe a plug-in for winamp or foobar?

I applogize if maybe you've covered such a tool or technique in one of the later shows that I haven't yet listened to, but I didn't see any such tool in your blog's exellent tools list either.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge/insights/time/love with the world. We appreciate it.

Thanks Scott. With that info, I've got foobar working great for batch converting my podcasts to doublespeed (although I can only handle yours at about 1.7x).
