Use Applescript to Manage this Podcast
Most of the time, I turn iTunes on and let it play throughout the day. An applescript called "Play NPR News Summary" you can download from the website "Doug's Applescripts for Itunes" makes this podcast very useful. It occasionaly checks for a new file, downloads it, and then plays it at the end of your next song. After it is over, it picks up whereever you left off in your playlist. This makes it very much like the hourly news summary you get on an NPR station and used to get on most commerical stations too. It would be great if the script erased the old files when it was over, but that isn't too much of an issue.Read full review »

Always been great to have these podcasted updates but lately they have been several hours late to update.

I trust NPR to report the most important news and provide the best analysis, not the nonesense that pervades many commercial televison, internet, and radio networks.

It is great to have an intelligent national and world news broadcast that is updated hourly. If you are looking for the latest news this is a must download podcast.
