Listening to Podcasts In My Car

A while ago, I mentioned that I wanted to be able to listen to podcasts in my car, and found a solution - an FM modulator that allows me to play MP3s through my radio.

I didn't get it, because my wife jumped on me about it. Well, it turns out she had alterior motives - She was getting that for me for Christmas! I ended up with the Belkin TuneCast II Mobile FM Transmitter. It's a step up from the one I linked to before, and the main difference is that this one comes with a car charger, so I won't be burning AAA batteries all the time!

So far, I'm pretty impressed. It works great. It does change how I listen though. When sitting at my computer, I listen in Windows Media Player, and set the speed to fast. My Pocket PC doesn't offer that as an option. Also, I typically skip the music in most shows. I don't try to skip them while I'm driving, so I'm getting the full effect of the show.

So far, my commute has been dedicated to the Daily Source Code. It's a nice way to wind down from a day at the office (my mornings are still dedicated to Bob and Tom!).
