I saw this post out of the corner of my eye and thought, WHAT?!? An NSA wiretap has a podcast?!?

Cue iPod commerical: Dick Cheney's silhouette rockin' out with white earbuds...

Damn, I thought you meant Gregor Samsa, the band. Excellent one at that.

Yay from me too! I've been wishing for a podcast of Wiretap for a long time now. Hope it doesn't get yanked.

For a moment I thought you meant this wiretap, the one written by Mark Leyner.

How I would love a new episode of that . . . but I'll hafta check this other Wiretap out, always looking for things to stream at work . . .

Yay! They should clone Jonathan G. and then he can go back and make his back issues into podcasts too. I'd settle for a cd of old Wiretap episodes though.

Hey, this could use a "podcast" tag.

I seem to remember that previous Wiretap episodes were available online, unofficially, and the provider got shut down by the CBC. That made me sad. This makes me happy, and I hope it stays around this time!

Oh, gold! I love this show! Thank you so much!

Jonathan would love there to be an official podcast of Wiretap, and he is aware that there is/are unofficial podcast(s).

The CBC has to shut these things down, though, because they don't have download clearances for the music used in the show.

I'm curious if this is actually true. The people reproducing works illegally are violating the copyrights of the music rights holders. I suppose they are violating CBC's copyrights as well, but CBC is under no obligation to enforce the music holder's rights. If CBC were to (in theory) turn a blind eye to these podcasts they wouldn't be in the wrong. At least I think.

Anyway, I think it's dumb that the CBC can't secure the online redistribution rights for the music in Wiretap. If the national broadcaster can't get redistribution rights then our online copyright rules are too restrictive.
