Still, I can't understand someone being willing to post their work to the entire internet but not being willing to let the author know.
Eh, one is broadcasting your work, and the other is actively pushing your work. As someone who subscribes to that mindset, it seems really obvious to me but I can try and explain it more if you're iterested.

Personally, I'd be worried about the author hearing about it elsewhere and feeling slighted, or worse, upset.
Well, that would only be a worry for me if the author hadn't given permission. And the thing is, I've asked author's for permission and had responses where they say yes, but clearly are uninterested in the podfic, it's not even that uncommon of a reaction. I can see if that's the reactions you're getting that it might make it seem like author's won't care when they've given blanket permission. *shrugs*

But yeah, the point still stands that you should tell an author always. :)
