    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

Regulators mull antitrust look at Apple

From Reuters: Regulators mull antitrust look at Apple

From the article: “Regulators are considering an inquiry into whether Apple Inc violates antitrust law by requiring that its programing tools be used to write applications for the iPad and iPhone, a source familiar with the matter said on Monday.”

Should be interesting to see if anything comes of this. Again, if Microsoft tried something like this, everyone would think it was horrible.

More from Father Greg Boyle and Bob Edwards

Filed under: Radio Today — Charlie Summers @ 4:16 pm

This morning on XM Satellite Radio’s The Bob Edwards Show was another interview with Father Greg Boyle of Homeboy Industries. If you don’t subscribe to XM, it would be well worth it to hit XM Radio Online and sign up for a demo account; tune to Channel 133 this evening each hour between 8:00pm and 11:00 pm EDT to hear the rebroadcast of this morning’s interview (also at 4:00 am tomorrow morning, if you’re crazy enough to be up at that hour).

This show was great, but it made me want to hear more, so I went back to the August 11, 2005 The Bob Edwards Show and listened again to the first time Bob sat down with Fr. Boyle.

I thought others, especially those who weren’t subscribers to XM Satellite Radio back in 2005, might want to give it a listen, too, so I posted it to The Bob Edwards Show/Bob Edwards Weekend Discussion Forum - you can easily play it using the embedded audio player.

(Those of you relatively new to the show might not recognize the original theme song, or at least the cut that was used in the early days of the program. Also note that this episode ran during the month or so where the opening was not dated.)
