    Contact a lawyer.  "Without permission" tends to attract lawsuits if put in public domain.  We are just user and our advice is useless in a courtroom.

    Simple answer is NO


    You can not use any RIAA music in a podcast PERIOD.


    There are not licenses to fully cover podcasting as a podcast is a download and in the eyes of the law it is a mechanical copy. 


    So do not put any music you do not have the copyrights to - or that which is not specifically listed as "podsafe music"


    Google "podsafe music" for more info.
