Steve Jobs showed showed ipodder-like features in the next release of iTunes at the Wall Street Journal's D Conference last night which will supposedly available within 60 days.

In the Q&A, Jason Calcanis of Weblogs, Inc. asked if there was any possibility of using the iTunes music store for paid podcasting. Jobs replied that for the moment they were only considering it as free content, but that he was open to looking into it.

As there is some speculation here and other places about the viPod:

On the subject of video features in iTunes, he said it was to play music videos and other bonus material in order to help the music studios promote the sale of albums as well as songs. But when pressed on the subject of whether or not there might eventually be movies for sale, he said "I'm going to have to leave that answer to our actions in the future." (He did repeat his past comments about the difficulty of creating a good movie experience on small form factor devices.)
