I'm pretty new to this whole rss scene but one thing I
noticed so far is that there is no good free program that
gets news syndicate rss feeds as well as podcasts.
I have understood that podcasts are rss feeds with an
enclosure.
What I am missing is a window that lists all the items in
an rss document with its title and descrption and link to
the whole article. Like feedDemon.

    Good point! I'm a new iPodder user and new to the
    RSS/podcasts as well. I was thinking along the same lines
    as you. I used a RSS reader for the TEXT and then manual
    clicked within sharpReader to download the podcasts. I
    found that to labor intensive so I found the iPodder and
    loaded my feeds into that for auto downloading. BUT! Now
    I see that these feeds have text posts and I have missed the
    text messages inbetween podcasts. So it still takes two
    programs to cover the TEXT reading and the AUTO Downloading
    of podcast. Hm....

    Maybe if more of us commented on this issue they will get to
    correcting this in a future release.

    P!
