I have a simple solution to this. I think everyone should pick up a
baby-naming book or a dictionary in your preferred language, turn to
the first page, and name your first podcast the first name or term
listed there. Then name your second podcast the next name or term.
Then name your third the next one, and so on.
End of argument.
Oh, and remember to use the ID3 tags to do your real naming...
