Jon Udell received a takedown request from This American Life. It sounds like, policywise, TAL wants to host non-downloadable streams (see “Why you can’t download our MP3 files” on this page) but didn’t realize that m3u playlists leave the door open for downloading. I wonder why they abandoned their Real Audio streams? Side note, TAL figures into my early work on podcasting. But rather than try to force-fit the show into something it wasn’t, I simply found other programs to listen to.
