I'm looking for interesting and fun podcasts and other stuff to listen to during my boring ~30 minute each way daily commute in the car. I'd like recommendations specifically from outside the UK, but in English. Preferences and likes/dislikes inside! [more inside]

Is there a quick (or a quicker) way to download all files of a given type from the Media Library of a self-hosted WordPress site? The site in question has about 200 MP3s. I can easily sort out the MP3s by selecting "Audio." But how can I download them all at once? Is there a plug-in? FTP looks like a big pain, too, as these files are organized in folders by year and month, and there are several years here -- and many months with no uploads at all.
Advice needed: is this an easy setup for a home media server so anyone can watch movies and listen to music anywhere in the house? [more inside]
Unexpected Holiday Gift: Someone got me a Zune HD! Problem. I already own an ipod Nano and know next to nothing about Zune. What can the Zune do that my nano can't? How do you use yours? What does the Zune do well? Any tips or trips or strange things/ 3rd party applications I can use?

I work on the production team for a long-running public radio program. We have a massive archive of shows in digital format (MP3 and AIFF) which we need to collate into a powerful and highly flexible database - something like iTunes, but much more advanced. Does a program exist to do this? [more inside]

Does anyone have, or know where I could find, Hubert Dreyfus's lectures on Heidegger available for download? His own website at UC Berkeley used to have them (this FPP from 2003 actually linked to them) but for whatever reason (bandwidth, maybe?) they have been taken down.

What non iPod hard drive MP3 players are you impressed with? Which are you envious of? Are there any that should be avoided? I'm looking to buy one in the range of $200-300US, with sound quality (especially a rich low-end) being of primary importance. Thus I'd probably end up buying one with a 1.5G capacity that had great sound over a 5G player with only decent sound. Also, I'll probably be buying on eBay, unless anybody cares to persuade me otherwise.
