Bible Podcast ::

For a while now I've been itching to find a way to Podcast, the big obstacle is time, but I think I've solved it... I'll podcast the Bible, probably a chapter a day and doing an OT book then a NT book, roughly. I can justify the time spent reading as preparation (at least for the OT bits) and as a spiritual exercise (all of it) so I am just left with the technical side to justify to myself!

The big question now is know which translation to use. I need one that is either out of copyright, Creative Commons or some such licensed, or that I can get permission to use in this way (eventually the whole Bible would be online...) without cost.

Any comments or suggestions?

I guess this list from Crosswire/Sword gives an idea of what would be possible translations:
