The LDS church makes its general conference sessions available as downloadable MP3s, which is great, except my iPod treats them as songs. I prefer for it to treat them as podcasts so that I can resume playing the talks where I leave off after each day’s commute to work. To that end, I created a podcast RSS feed for the October 2005 General Conference, downloadable here:
If you’re a podcast addict like myself, you should know what to do with that link. If not, any popular podcasting software should work. Just find an option to “subscribe to a podcast” and use it with the above URL. This should work with amaroK, gtkPod, Juice (formerly iPodder), or any iPod management or podcasting software.
This feed lets you grab each whole session (4 total), but not individual talks. If there is demand, I may hack some python to automagically create a feed for each talk, which would be pretty darn cool too.
Note that I am not actually distributing the content; this podcast simply points to lds.org to download the MP3 files. This should avoid any legal issues, since I have respected all copyrights. I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve read all the fine print on lds.org and can’t find anything prohibiting this, so let me know if you think I’m in violation.
