Ted Leung’s custom podcast setup

Ted Leung explains that he doesn’t use the iTunes podcasting support, or the podcasting support built in to NetNewsWire—instead he uses a modified version of Clint Ecker’s script as a script subscription in NetNewsWire.

This way he can organize his podcasts by duration. Ted writes:

My modified version of podder looks at the duration of the podcast, and puts all podcasts shorter than a 35 minute ferry ride into Podcast-short. This makes it easy for me to optimize my Podcast listening by location.

I love hearing stuff like this. Adding scripting to an app is a little work, but it pays off hugely when people can do their own custom workflows.
