Re: Bitrates and broadcast media.
It doesn't even make sense. If I jump in the car and drive to the shop, I don't want to fanny about with my phone finding a podcast to listen to a few minutes of.
I stick the radio on and listen to one of about four stations (unless England are playing and I'll stick TMS on ).
The vast majority of people do that.
( Although if anybody can recommend a decent Rugby Union podcast, it would be appreciated )
