Is there any way you can start a Podcast feed that will run on my iPhone?  I can't easily listen to the browser-based ones when I'm driving around.  Or maybe I just don't know how to use the Podcast app with your feed...

there's a "subscribe with iTunes" link here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/grogcast
that should work for you
there are several other feed options there, too.

Thanks for the Homeworld review Star, It was already a strong contender for purchase based on JH's approval.

The GrogCast was good. I do wonder if the in-jokes and some of the more risky jokes might not be a bit "much" for the casual listener.

Nice Preussens Gloria sample, by the way.

Starfury sounds much less like a rock star than I would've imagined.

I've never met Starfury but when I hear him on the podcast I'm picturing someone between Johnny Fever from WKRP and The Dude from The Big Lebowski.  ;D
Enjoyed the episode!

Admittedly, I did push it a bit with the jokes. Hopefully the 'pimp of the year' thing (pulled from the movie I'm Gonna Get You Sucka) and everything else wasn't too over the top of people's heads.

I wasn't feeling well at all that night (had to leave at one point to go be sick) and was even more quiet than usual so I felt I needed to try to improve on it a bit.

I'm guessing most of the audience already has experience with the forums and the general tenor here.

I don't think that any sort of lines have been crossed in terms of material. I do agree that keeping the in-jokes to a minimum is probably a good idea, though.

Of course, I'll probably forget that suggestion entirely when I'm up.  ::)

Anything that pops into my head is fodder for the show.

Check out the GrogCast next Tuesday, you'll see what I mean. Sometimes the line connecting the dots is rather long and twisted, but it connects them.

That doesn't work on the iPhone.  There is an app made just for easy subscriptions to Podcasts.

does that app need an RSS feed?
