I think that any idea has potential but there are some things that you are quite right about and most important of that is the issue of copyright. You are going to have to get the copyright's owner's permission to read their work. I love podcasts. I think that they are a good idea and I'm just starting to get my feet wet with one (I should say 2) of my own. Another little "glitch" in your first plan is that you want to be able to have your CD's ordered but you are reading works from others - meaning that you would be profiting from others' works - which is copyright infringement. The way around would be to come up with material of your own or use work that has no copyright or the copyright has run out.
