Oh, and in a sexy voice too?

I want to listen to my custom news/etc. in the morning. Who has a way of turning their RSS text feeds into mp3s? Feeds->RSS Text->Spoken Mp3->PDA/phone/iTunes, as automated as possible?

I'm almost sure I saw a little side article about this in a Mac magazine a few months ago, but it is now lost to me.
There has got to be a way to do this - in fact, a bunch of ways - who's got the best?

Do you need something for the Mac or for the PC?

The folks over at hak5.org did something like that in S01E03 and created a couple of scripts that create a wave file from your favorite rss feeds.

It becomes interesting at about 7:00 in the movie.

I once did some freelance work for Feed2podcast, which seems to be close to what you're seeking.

Oh, sorry JDHarper and all: I'll take a good solution for Mac, PC or Ubuntu Linux. (In that order - my main machine is a Mac, so a Tiger solution would be preferred.)

This doesn't cover everyone else but I especially like the International Herald Tribune's audionews feature. It basically lets you build your own podcast of all their articles. In a voice that reasonably sounds like a human.
