Learning 部首?

Hi everyone,
I've learned tons of useful stuffs with the phonetics maps (thanks Goulniky, Henning and Changye etc.) but I can't find anything about the radicals in Chinespod. Whether or not they should be taught and how is probably worth a thread on its own, but I find that knowing them at the very least is useful, if not necessary, to look up unknown characters in a dictionary.

this online dictionary http://www.zdic.net/zd/bs/ (all in Chinese) offers the choice of 2 sets of radicals, the simplified modern set and the traditional Kangxi ones (also used in Japanese if i'm not mistaken, Changye?). 

Now, wouldn't it be great if there was a way to combine the phonetic maps with radicals in a way similar to the excellent http://www.visualthesaurus.com/

That'd be an amazing feature for Chinespod, wouldn't it (wink)?
