I'm seeing blocks like this several times an hour in my web log for one of my sites that hosts a few podcasts. In fact, Apple IPs makes of the bulk of clients (7-8 of the top 10) that access my site regularly because they do so well over 100 times a day. Why?

Is your podcast in the iTMS? That's the only reason I can think of it, or maybe Apple employees are loving your podcasts.

I have four podcast listed in the iTMS, but it's still weird. The same file will be accessed multiple times from multiple IPS by the same agent, or in tandem with another agent (Jakarta). Redundant servers on their end updating near simultaneously might explain some of it?
