Mitch's segment was good.

Unfortunately the first thing you'll hear on this podcast is an 
invitation to go to their website and read their terms of use 
(reproduced below), which claim that you can only download it for seven 
(7) days from the date of posting.

Absurd! IMHO we shouldn't contribute to this kind of nonsense, but since 
we have, I decided to mirror the episode so that people can hear it in 
the future. http://pony.noisebridge.net/digitalp_20090811-1032a.mp3
