Those needing a larger podcast database should by all means find themselves satisfied with iTunes' more mature collection.

Just keep in mind that only the new Zune models (the 4/8 and 80) can natively read mp4 files. If you have a 30, the software'll automatically transcode to a lower-quality file.

The main difference I see between Redmond and Cupertino (having visited and enjoyed both) is that the residents of the former don't think their byproduct smells better than everyone else's. :p

I already use the itunes podcast database for podcasts on my zune30. Haven't had a problem yet. I'm not such an audiophile that I get all in to the variables in sound quality.

I listen to mostly sermons from podcasts and they sound just fine. But it's a great tip for those not in the know.:)
