Thank you so much! This is exactly the kind of information I was
looking for. So, given your experience, I think it's safe to start
with a different host for the Wordpress blog (with podpress), as you
did, and prepay for 3 months of storage on Podcast Spot.
The one thing I'm going to check is that they can handle English and
Japanese. If they can do that, we're on!
