I've got npr podcasts to download and play direct to the 8800.
they dont play as they load, so it takes a while.
from here, for example [on your bb] NPR : Podcast Directory
the mp3 download wont work for me but if you click on the yahoo button My Yahoo! - Add NPR: 4PM ET News Summary
it tried to auto play [w media player] and wouldnt, but then I went back to the browser and hit the speaker button, and I'm listening to the NPR news.
the media player, plays in the browser window
