Google Play Music podcasts available for some users

That Google was planning to add podcasts to its Play Music service isn't exactly news. We've known that since last year. That it would be coming this month, however, is the big thing, thanks to a slip of the tongue by sportscaster Bill Simmons. Now that the cat is out of the bag, it seems that Google is slowly, very slowly rolling out the service.
