Instructions for getting the Matt Brauer Column podcasts
Podcasting allows you to download the MP3 audio files of the Matt Brauer Column automatically and listen to them whenever and wherever you want. To set yourself up to receive podcasts you’ll need a podcast subscription client. Here are some examples:
- iTunes http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/
- Juice http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/
- Winamp http://www.winamp.com/
Each of these will allow you to download podcasts and listen to them on your computer. These are just popular examples. There are others you may prefer. If you want to make your podcasts portable, you’ll need to transfer them from your computer to a portable MP3 player, such as the ever-popular iPod.
If you don't want the hassle of podcasting, and just want to listen to the audio file, simply click on the mp3 tag to the left of the article title on the main article page or the archive page.
