New meaning was given to the expression “happy birthday, and many happy returns” in this birthday/tax day edition of Podcasting Liberally.
Joining The Birthday Boy (who has no business pushing their buttons, some Righties claim) was a taxing panel of political bloggers and boisterous blowhards: Will, Lee, Carl, and Nick.
They begin with a bitter discussion of “bittergate,” and a better discussion of a bitter Rossi’s budget busting “Progressive” Transportation
“Plan” fantasy. Next the bloggers barked at Reichert’s sub-prime fundraising bust and boasted about Burner’s better fundraising bonanza. There was some banter about the Colombia trade deal and bellyaching about the Sonics, too.

That would be “Colombian”.
I have a dumb question. If I click on the link to the mp3, it loads and starts playing, but I can’t download it. Ideally I’d like to just subscribe so I can get them in iTunes, but if I could just download them one by one I would be happy.
Basically, it looks like I would have to buy QuickTime Pro in order to save the stream.
Alas, Victor Borge: January 3, 1909 – December 23, 2000
@3 – You can get the QuickTime Pro for free…at least I did. Just do a torrent search.
“if I could just download them one by one I would be happy.
Open it in Windows Media Player (WMP) and you should be able to “Save As”. If WMP is not your default player, copy the link, open WMP up from the start menu, then select Edit–>Open URL. Paste in the link. Listen. Save As…
Better yet (and this is platform independent), right-click on the link and select “save link as.”
That worked; on a Mac with the standard mouse you have to control-click. I really don’t care for WMP anyways.
Thanks, I really didn’t know who he was. :)

This was a fun listen. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud listening on the bus ride home tonight.
