I could not find a podcast from the site you noted on your WAI web site.
I found a downloadable mp3/mpeg file but that is not a podcast.  Is
there a podcast that I just did not find?
>From Wikipedia
"Podcasting is the method of distributing multimedia
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimedia>  files, such as audio programs
or music videos, over the Internet
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet>  using either the RSS
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_%28file_format%29>  or Atom
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom_%28standard%29>  syndication
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_syndication>  formats, for playback on
mobile devices and personal computers. The term podcast, like 'radio
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio> ', can mean both the content and
the method of delivery. The host or author of a podcast is often called
a podcaster. Podcasters' web sites may also offer direct download
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Download>  or streaming
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streaming_media>  of their files; a
podcast however is distinguished by its ability to be downloaded
automatically using software capable of reading RSS or Atom feeds."
