    This may not be as it seems but..... I like to listen to Diane Rehm Show. At the program site, I'm told that I need Adobe Flash to be able to listen. I find that Apple does not allow Adobe Flash to be downloaded. Then, I find that I can listen to the DR Show podcast! Why isn't Adobe Flash required for both realtime and podcast listening or why don't the realtime broadcasts use the same audio format that their podcast uses? Thanks for your enlightenment! Bob

    An interesting question about Flash for once. Many websites such as YouTube are now busily converting all their media to be HTML5 compliant, so in some cases you will find a flash version and in others you will search and find an HTML5 compatible version. It'll be pot luck for a while but eventually everything should (!) be HTML5 compliant.
