HOW TO SUBSCRIBE
______________________________________________________________________________

When you subscribe to a podcast, new episodes of the podcast are automatically downloaded to your computer when they become available. You subscribe to podcasts using programs called podcatchers. iTunes and Juice are two free podcatchers that will work on both Macs and PCs. Juice, which used to be called iPodder, works well with screen readers.

You can download iTunes at: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
You can download
Juice at http://juicereceiver.sourceforge.net/index.php.
