Rockbox , the “open source jukebox firmware”, on my iPod. Unfortunately, Rockbox isn’t quite ready for primetime on fourth generation iPods and after two days of frequent lockups I decided to revert back to Apple’s original firmware.

Thanks to firmware juggling and not quite unrelated iTunes juggling, I kind of lost track of the podcasts I was listening to and stopped downloading new episodes. Thankfully, I had a backlog of about 400 episodes from 40-50 different podcasts on my iPod. This afternoon, I queued up Black Jack Justice, a hard-boiled detective series from Decoder Ring Theater done in the style of old-time radio dramas. It’s good stuff, and Season One is available at Podiobooks.com. Also available at Podiobooks is Season One of The Adventures of the Red Panda, an homage to The Shadow and The Green Hornet.

Decoder Ring Theater just wrapped up Season Two of Black Jack Justice and has begun a new season of The Adventures of the Red Panda, so I need to get on the stick and start downloading podcasts again soon.

  1. While 40 – 50 subscriptions seems laughably small to me, a back log of 400 episodes is nothing to sneeze at. I’d be pulling my hair out and can have no more than 50 episodes on my iPod before I start to get a little wiggy.

    But thanks for this, and the many, mentions of Podiobooks.com.

    I’m not actually counting my Podiobooks subscriptions in with the podcast count, but I’m still looking to whittle the number down a bit, since I can’t listen 24×7.
