I know some people like audio books and the like when painting, I recently found a nice compact little programme that lets you grab podcasts and BBC listen again radio programmes so you can listen to them again later. Has a facility to capture all the bits of a series, no spyware, doesn't crash. I came across it having moved to a new soundcard that doesn't support the recording software I was using.

Thought I'd link to it in case anyone else likes to record BBC radio programmes to listen to at not broadcast times and wants to keep them for listening later / popping on an MP3 player to listen to in the car etc.
