What is a PodCast?

 A podcast is audio you can download and listen to wherever and whenever you want. You can hear new voices as well as traditional radio, and you can listen on your computer, or you can automatically download new PodCasts into your iPod-like device.

NOTE: To download a program and listen to it on your computer, simply right click on the link to one of the program names above and save the file for listening on your computer.

However, by far the best and easiest way is to use iTunes , which is a free program that automatically will download new programs from the DigiBarn Radio Podcast (if you include the feed above as one of your selected channels) to your computer and/or iPod (or iPod-like device) as we add them to this page. Click here to go to the iTunes download page. There you will find versions for the PC, and Mac. iTunes is easy and quick to install and will provide you with an excellent freeware PodCast aggregator.
