You can also do this with WordPress and podPress, using category feeds.
It's pretty easy. On my personal blog (Shawnogram), I have RSS feeds with
enclosures set for any entries categorized with "audio podcast" or "video
podcast." That way, if someone wants to receive only those types of files,
then that's all they'll get. Of course, they can get everything by
subscribing to the site's main feed.
