What is a podcast? A "podcast" (or perhaps more appropriately called a "netcast") is nothing more than an Internet-based show, regardless of whether it's audio or video. Contrary to the name, you do not need an iPod or MP3 player to listen to it. Because this podcast is nothing more than an MP3 file, you can listen to the show using any MP3-capable player or by clicking the "play" arrow next to each podcast below. To download, click on the download arrow next to that podcast's volume control (Chrome) or right-click -> Save Audio As... (Firefox, Edge, or ... ugh ... Internet Explorer).
