how to listen

Are you new to the concept of podcasts?  There are a number of ways to listen to the audio recordings that we are offering here.

Listen on your computer, right now

Listen to the shows right here via the little player at the bottom of each show description.

Download and listen later, either on your computer or with your portable music player

Download the mp3 files to your computer or portable music player.  A link to the mp3 file for download can be found at the bottom of each post.

Subscribe to our email notification service.

You’ll get an email when we post a new show.  That way you don’t have to remember to keep coming back to see if we’ve posted something.  To subscribe, go to the “subscribe via email” section in the upper right corner of this page, enter your email address, and click the “subscribe” button.

Subscribe to the RSS feed.

For the truly internet savvy, there’s RSS.  RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and is a way for you to subscribe to internet content (usually blogs) so that it comes to you, rather than you having to go check each website.  To use RSS feeds you need an RSS reader program, also known as a feed aggregator.  Apple’s iTunes will do this for audio podcasts, but there are lots of other programs that will do it, and even a few websites (like Bloglines).  Once you’ve got your RSS reader program or web account set up, you can subscribe to this podcast using the RSS feed, via the orange RSS link in the upper right corner.  If this makes no sense to you, you probably should use the download or email options above.  But be aware that there’s a better way, and when you get some time, check out the concept of how to subscribe to a podcast via RSS.

Finally, note that you don’t need an Apple-branded music player (i.e. an iPod) to listen to a podcast.  Any computer or portable music player will work fine!
