Sermons podcast in advance

Instead of coming to church to hear a sermon, we could have the sermon delivered via podcast during the week, and listen to it as many times as we like, going over tricky bits and giving it some thought. Then we could come to church on Sunday to discuss the issues with the pastor there to provide the theological insight we need, or to clarify the points we weren't clear on. I wonder whether that would be more satisfying for everyone, and more in tune with today's digital, participation culture. It's the same model that Khan Academy has been using in schools, with some success. What do you think? If you already go to church, would this make it any better or maybe worse? If you don't go to church, would this make it more appealing?

PS - There would always be people dominating the discussion, though.
PPS - And not everyone would have the time during the week to listen to sermons in advance.
