More annoying than you'd think. Involves the word "compile". You can just right-click and select "Do Not Auto-Delete" if you don't mind the track appearing in your list of podcasts until the end of time.

Nuh-uh. Nuh-uh. The Soundbug is a gadget that gets attached to two things: an audio source, and a flat surface. It then causes the flat surface to vibrate, turning it into a giant speaker.
