    Podcasts often come complete with a lot of crappy music, can anyone recommend software that can be used to cut out individual songs? I'd like to be able to cut out the songs I like and get rid of the podcast itself—those podcasts really start to eat up HD space...

    Is Quicktime Pro the best option for this?

    Bump...

    Anyway, I've never installed Garageband (HD space issues and all), but might this also work?

    Little help please :)

    it may not be the best, but probably the easiest. I would go with that.

    Audacity? It's free compared to $20(?) for QT Pro.
    Worth a try.

    Thanks for the replies, unfortunately my back-episodes of the podcast I'm most interested in cutting down (the CBC Radio 3 podcast) are AAC files (so I might be stuck with QT Pro after all). There's both an MP3 and an Ogg version available, though, so I'll give both of these a try in the future.
