ITunes' podcast support is great. The program always remembers where you pause podcast installments, and iPhone users can sync podcasts on a computer other than the one they use for music and video syncing.
So what if you've got a file you wish were in a podcast-say, an interview downloaded from the Web-but isn't? Red Sweater Software's TypeCast solves this problem by creating a phony podcast in iTunes and filling it with whatever files you drag into its window.
It's a bare-bones tool that fills an esoteric, but sometimes extremely useful, niche.
