There is an accessible podcasting software program and I'm looking in to
receiving Podcasts.

If you mean creating your own podcast, using your jukebox to record,
then I haven't tried, but I don't see any reason you couldn't.

If you mean receiving podcasts on your jukebox, then yes, you definitely
can do it. I haven't yet found a podcast client program that I love,
but I've found a couple that get the job done. I was using Blogmatrix
Sparks. It would automatically download the latest episodes of the
podcasts I subscribed to and I would then move the files from my hard
drive to my jukebox every morning. I recently formatted my hard drive
and re-installed Windows and now I'm trying Doppler. The functionality
is the same, but Doppler seems to use fewer CPU cycles than Blogmatrix
Sparks. HappyFish sounds nice because it will supposedly automatically
put the latest downloaded episodes on your jukebox whenever you plug it
in (sync), but it gave me errors when I tried subscribing to a couple of
my favorite podcasts, so I don't think it's quite ready for primetime.
