I was not aware of Rain Radio, were you? I am always amazed at the great content on Active rain that we can access for FREE. Thanks for sharing this information!
Are you tuning into Rain Radio? Bob Stewart has started a weekly internet radio show that features great content about ActiveRain and brings some great guest speakers "to the mic". We started off with Todd Clark and have moved on to others like Brad Andersohn, Ben Kinney, and Jay Thompson. What you didn't know about this show! Well it's not too late. If you cannot tune into these shows live, you can always download them afterward. They are being hosted on a website called blogtalkradio.com and each of the shows are available in mp3 download afterward. (PS - the Todd Clark interview was the first episode and is the only one not available for download)
So there are a few ways to get the podcast downloaded.
One way is direct on the blogtalkradio website. If you go to the Rain Radio page at www.blogtalkradio.com/activebob you will see the episodes listed with a download button under each one
The other way to download would be to see the episodes listed in your RSS reader. Below you see my favorite which is google reader and the RSS feed displayed. (the RSS feed URL is www.blogtalkradio.com/activebob.rss) When I open one of the posts, there is a mp3 link that if I right click it, I can "save target" and get the mp3 file. I like this method best. I love RSS feeds because often it helps you get to the meat of the information and not be distracted by all of the page ads flashing all about you. You also see a nice NEAT list of all the posts and the ones you haven't "read" are in bold which helps make them stand out. This is a great way to not miss anything. If you want more information about USING RSS feeds see my article "Are You Information Hungry - RSS Feeds Are For You"
I really have enjoyed all of the Rain Radio shows and having the ability to download them and listen to them on my smartphone as a podcast later is a great benefit. I hope that if you missed them live you will check them out too! I believe they are being syndicated also to iTunes, but having a blackberry, the above method is what I'm using.
