Priest is podcasting from the Vatican

Here's one of the more interesting pieces of news about podcasting I've ever heard: Father Roderick Vonhoegen, a Catholic priest of the Archdiocese of Utrecht (the Netherlands), is at the Vatican right now, and is creating podcasts on what's going on there for the general public. It's apparently part of a regular blog he maintains, called Catholic Insider. I had a difficult time interacting with the site on my Palm Treo, but the banner graphic is fantastic - it's a parody of iPod ads, but this time with the black figure having not only white headphones but a white collar as well. Of course, I would expect no less from a priest who lives in Amsterdam. (Thanks to Neville Hobson of "NevOn" for pointing this out.)
