Well, since Castblaster is firmly Windows, it may or nor be Adam's
doing... certainly he amongst others has been pushing the ideas
behind shownotes, metatags, links etc, which can become part of the
ID3 mp3 tag or whatever.
Now until Castblaster is ported to the Mac (if ever), I am going to
guess that Garageband will be updated to conform more closely to what
iTunes requires, or Apple will introduce some intermediary
application, create an Automator script, and iTunes will do the rest.
I am guessing too that not too far from now, Apple will bring it
together for its adherents: Garageband, iTunes, .Mac account, iDisk
server - the one-click option some of us have come to expect from
Apple. The iLife suite exists - can we expect the iPodcast suite soon?
Those using Windows will likely have to manually bring together a
variety of apps from different sources, and develop a workflow from
there. I haven't played with Castblaster so I'm not too sure how
complete a solution it is on its own.
I'm guessing that Apple will bring its own brand of elegance to the
mix, once the early bugs are worked out from the whole iTunes 4.9
