5. Also, Some podcasts are not available in tunes,but only on the website..
6. but you would like to listen to them in your phone.

Solution:

1. Your customer will download and install a browser extension
2. When they are browsing and see a podcast, they click their browser extension
3. The podcast downloads in the background and stores it in your servers.
4. When the customer is in his car, he opens up your iphone app(yes,you built an app too!)
5. and listens to the podcast.
6. This uses the data plan but audio is created with very low bitrate and
7. the data usage should be pretty negligible.
