My wife and I love listening to the NPR show This American Life, and we usually save up a bunch of podcasts for any upcoming long trips. Unfortunately, we have a trip coming up this weekend and we're out of episodes to listen to. I went to the TAL website and bought a number of older episodes for $0.99 each, but only after downloading a bunch of episodes did I realize that they showed up in iTunes as Audiobooks and were protected AAC files. I'm accustomed to the non-DRM mp3 podcasts. My 5th generation video iPod just died not too long ago, so our only way to listen to anything in the car is a crappy little 4GB mp3 player (via headphone jack to FM transmitter), which obviously can't play protected Tunes content. Is there ANY way to remove the protection so the file can be played on a different device? I've done a little research and I know it's possible to burn them to a CD and then rip them back to a computer, but that would take 1 CD per episode, and I bought 10 of them. Thanks in advance for your help. I know Apple's DRM is there for a reason, but in this case it's just being a pain in the ass.
