What drives me nuts is when podcasters keep mucking with the name of the podcast, adding 'mp3 version' or 'podcast' to the title. If you are downloading a podcast, you know it's a frikin' podcast. Please think about the naming before you START making a podcast, since many of us download the whole shebang from the beginning.
As far as dates, please start with the year, then month, then day.
My preference would be something like this:
BuzzCast 06/08/14 - Let Mad Dog make you happy
(2006 August 14th)
Win95 hacks - #853 - 32 bit colors!
I know that V is away, but let me point out for those of us using small-screened, weakly-developed (non-Apple) MP3 players: consistent file naming convention is important for navigation of multiple podcasts differing only by a date code. For example, 'BuzzCast...' files may not be alphabetized the same by some players as 'Buzzcast...' files. Picky, I know, but I didn't develop the folder/file software for my SanDisk Sansa m240. And, indeed, if I'm not careful (at least when T is at the controls) I'll be listening to Friday's podcast before Wednesday's, etc.
On a related rant, I like the date (or sequential serial number) first in the filename (Real Deal is good at this). Keeps things organized, even for weak devices...
