Earthcore - SciFi Podcast

I read about Earthcore, the first Podcast Novel while reading some blogs on bloglines (if you aren't a user, what the heck are you waiting for?) and downloaded to satisfy my curiosity.

I tried to copy it over to my Creative Zen Xtra Jukebox MP3 player and had no luck - the files from the site were bad/invalid or something. I tried to convert the files with no luck using several different converters with no luck. Oddly, Scott posted his IM address on the site and I had a nice chat with him and found out that he may have encoded the files at an odd bitrate (or some such tech nonsense).

I finally tried an MP3 plug in in Winamp and voila... it worked...

I listened to the Prologue last night and was pretty impressed and am looking forward to listening to more. Tech issues aside... Scott put up a slick site with lots of feeds and is accessible to chat with directly. Great stuff.
