What is a podcast? It's a pre-recorded digital broadcast that you can listen to—absolutely any time you want—using your media player or personal computer. What's more, if you subscribe to a WCLV podcast using software like iTunes, every episode will download automatically to your computer. Think of it as a magazine you listen to. Every issue will appear in your mailbox without you having to go to the store and pick it up. And, best of all, a subscription is absolutely free!
Because of rights issues, WCLV's podcasts are restricted to spoken-word materials. At the moment, Jerome Crossley's Considered Opinions reviews are available for you to listen to any time you want. Watch for more features to come soon, including WCLV's interviews with musicians and other members of the arts community.
So how do you listen?
If you're using iTunes:
1. Click on the word "Advanced" in the menu bar;
2. Click on "Subscribe";
3. Paste the address below (the one ending ".rss") into the box that appears and click "OK."
If you don't want to use software to subscribe, but you still want to listen to a recent podcast, you can go to the same address using Internet Explorer 7 and listen to the content by clicking on the link ending in ".mp3."
