Podcast Program Notes

The meeting covered, “What is a Podcast?”

a digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or portable media player, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.

The Overcast app is recommended over the Apple Podcast app because of the larger area for the play and pause controls. It is a free app with controls for speed and podcasts are synced between devices. Overcast has curated a list of recommended podcasts as well as categories of podcasts. NPR and PBS have several podcasts for many of your favorite radio programs. We explored the variety of podcast categories that are available. Google is a great way  to discover recommended podcasts.
