Ways to listen to the show

So you found the show, but want to know how you can listen to the podcast? There are many ways to do this. The most common is iTunes which is for both Mac and Windows. However, as not everyone can get that program to work or do not want to use it. I have made up a list of some alternate programs that you can use to also get the show. I’ll add in the special instructions you may need a little at a time as the information becomes available.

I give no warranty & make no claims how to work many of these programs or if they will work for you.

Once you have found the program of your choice here are the following links you can use to get them to work. If one doesn’t work, try another. Do not use all the links, even if you can or you will end up with multiple copies of the show.
