Unfamiliar with podcasting?

A podcast is akin to an audio or video program available through the internet. You can either stream episodes (via iTunes or SoundCloud) or download episodes for later. When you download a podcast onto your phone, tablet, or computer, you can listen to it any time, even without an internet connection. Podcasts are perfect for car rides, walking the dog, running on the treadmill — you get the picture.

Go to iTunes or SoundCloud and click the play button. Or listen right here on our website.
