Shedding Some Light on Podcasts!

Apologies to everyone who didn’t know what I was wittering on about in my Thank You Cloody and Frank posting, so here’s a little bit of information to clarify things.


Now I may be teaching my grannie to suck eggs as they say so, apologies if that’s the case, but here’s some information on podcasts.

Podcasts are shows on radio or TV which you can download to your computer, iPod or iPhone or Apple TV. If you have one!

You can see a huge list of podcasts and download them from the iTunes store.

Alternatively you can download specific programmes from other websites such as the BBC or ITV. I listen to Radio 2 a lot but often miss Wake Up to Wogan so I download the podcast from the Radio 2 webpage to the computer to listen to it, when I get time!

You could then transfer them to an iPod if you want to listen at other times and in other places. To be honest I haven’t bothered doing that yet, I just use the laptop.

There’s a tutorial here on the iTunes website just click on the Get Free Podcasts at the bottom of the page to load the video.

I found it quite useful.


  1. Oh I am impressed!
    I have been listening to podcasts and didnt even know lol! I listen to the radio one ones sometimes...but the Irish radio is better..not so politically correct.
    Right, thank you for that, now I know what they are, how do I get stephen fry's???
    Thank you

    You can get these from Stephen Fry's website http://www.stephenfry.com/media/ or alternatively from the iTunes Shop.

    You can install iTunes from here if you don't already have it http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ then link to the iTunes Store! The different types of materials are in the top left corner, you'll see the podcasts there.

    You'll be amazed at how much brilliant stuff there is.

  3. I think you and most bloggers are amazing and you all do brilliant stuff. This is a class room in it's self.

  4. With due respect wow gold and humility I write you this proposal which I believe would be of great interest to you. I am Mr.Ateeq Rahman Khan, currently Head of Corporate wow gold affairs with a reputable bank here.The battle PvP reasons frankly, I started working for an alternative to WOW, as I expect a number of measures I am not sure this is in the dofus kamas appropriate forum, but I'll try to help, but for those who may enter here with the same concerns about the BG. You can not control what the adversary, but you can create kamas dofus your own gains honor. During the course of which Mod you on both pages is available, the Alliance and the Horde, if you suspect fraud, you do not want it, create your own AV Premade.May I recommend you wow gold to your own WSG, AB, and EotS premade? As you've noticed, more generally premade roll over Mops because PUG's are not world of warcraft gold coordinated, and most probably not well enough. Honor, maximize profits, jumping back and forth between AB wow powerleveling and EotS, if you have a queue of pre-you.The remains leader and re-queuing, if someone in the BG calls for by wow power leveling ago premade.If can 't find enough people, one BG complete within your corporation and friends, then perhaps world of warcraft gold you should do what someone on our server The creation of a separate channel for pvp premade.Now, everybody wow geld looking for a pre-pvppremade can. the nerf my friend quit playing.The RAF program should be removed its a free to play wow gold mechanic used to draw money in for a company which does not have a subscription fee.I think one pissed High Templar would pretty much bedofus kamas GG for all of that..Yet another fastest player trying to meddle his nose in REAL melee. The battlecruiser can't take out anything on its own. And for that cost? Why buy it for a support unit when the Lord of the Rings Online Gold valkeriye fulfills the role? Or the wraith for that fact. On paper its supposed to be one of the assault ships, but its not. REAL melee? Are you stupid? I meanLOTRO Gold look, dude...your probably one of em noob zerg players. lol its so easy to play em. build x5 hatcheries and profit???? One defilier flyff alone could wipe out a whole terran battlegroup of forces. I remember the glory days of defliers flyff penya and mutalisks. Oh, and another way to win air fights with zerg is to send in a billion overlords. To buy cheap Final Fantasy XI gil WOW gold,WOW money,WOW accounts,WOW power leveling here will be your best choice!Those cases are clear to my mind because every time it happens, I ffxi gil ask myself "how the hell do you dodge an attack you can't even SEE?"Melee DPSers in your raid are playing very badly, increasing the eq2 plat damage to your tank and decreasing their own damage output. Mobs do dodge from behind, but they don't parry or block. Simply fighting from behind a mob results in an increase of 5% in your DPS on most mobs eq2 gold because you cut parry out, plus you avoid giving the mob the 'next swing is 50% faster' that they get on a successful wow po parry.Don't forget that some even get BONUS attacks when they parry. I can't tell you how many times we wiped wow or on Gruul because of hateful strikes...Melee LOTR Gold DPS should always be behind mobs as much as possible in raids.Or zerglings, never tanks. And for your Warhammer gold little tank theory,and buy Warhammer gold guardian do aoe.No, seriously. I like it like it has always been Amen brother! my battlecrusers got torn up soooooo easily! i think the carriers are fine. the intersepters Warhammer gold look weaker, though.They are the same, carriers just can't make extra 4 interceptors now.

  5. OMG! Fengyeweirdname is everywhere!! We need a podcast on how to get rid of him.

  6. Dear Winifred ~~ You certainly know heaps more than I do about these things. I rely on radio for music and cds of course. So I don't have an I-pod or a mobile phone. I am glad you enjoyed the story of Kathleen who was so young to witness a birth. So you pop to the shops, Patty runs, and I get taken by my Home Care lady once a fortnight for 2 hours.
    Take care Winifred. Love, Merle.

  7. I thank you so much for all the nice post and comments. I'm happy you are so into podcasts.
    The storm is over, power has been restored in this area; however thousands are still without electricity. Clean up is in progress and will probably last longer than we desire.


I'd love to hear from you:

My Singer 338!

Well here it is my very first sewing machine, the one I got for my 21st birthday in 1966! I know it cost my Mam  a lot to buy it for me...
