Having now listened to all ten of these tracks...clearly the "Electronic" community is not going to iTunes to buy their tracks. (Or what they ARE buying is masquerading under some other genre.)
been meaning to ask you, Chris - as a (rare) itunes user, I want to get this same sort of data for the podcasts (that's all I use itunes for) is is accessible somewhere easy - or is this something you painstakingly assemble?
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy - Swift

Yes, and yes.
You can generate a Top 10 (through 300 - 300!) for lots of genres, including podcasts, with Apple's RSS generator (itunes.apple.com), which will give you a quick link to a newsfeed which you can add to your aggregator/browser if you so desire. That may be enough for you OR you may be obsessive compulsive like me, and take that XML and turn it into something fancy, reformatted, posted here automagically and with all sorts of affiliate links that get us occasional nickels. (I think - I don't know if anybody actually clicks on those things ever. We actually go through LinkShare to generate our feeds instead of Apple, which takes care of the affiliate code stuff.)
