Progressive Podcasting & Links

[At our February meeting Kate Anne provided information on progressive podcasting and we listened to a still pertinent 2005 Progressive Radio podcast of Fr. Roy Bourgeois being interviewed by Progressive Magazine editor Matthew Rothschild. We wanted to share some of Kate's information and suggestions based on her handout.]

You don't have to own an iPod to listen to/view podcasts. You can do so online and/or download them directly to your computer.

Subscribe to most of these and others through iTunes, or pick and choose as the spirit moves you. For more info on using iTunes for podcasting, visit: Search their archives for the categories of your choosing and select, or enter the feed url (found on many sites providing podcasts) into your own iTunes application.
