I never listen to your podcasts because I can't download them. EconTalk is so much easier.


Very helpful even in a hellhole place like KARACHI,PAKISTAN

Where is the link I can copy and paste into my podcatcher?

My wife, like President Obama, has a Blackberry that she loves and will not give up. How can she get your podcast on it?


The most obvious and simplest way around this is to simply let people download the .mp3 file. This is what I end up doing, but requires logging into a computer and copying files, etc., is annoying.


You claim to offer instructions for people to subscribe to podcasts who do not use iTunes, but you only offer instructions for people using a phone. Remember the old-fashioned computer? It used to be that a site like yours would simply provide the URL to a podcast which a person could copy and paste into their software in order to subscribe. Why do you no longer offer this? I would love to listen to the podcast, but you have made it unavailable to me.

I'm using Player.FM and it's also worth it. I'm not affiliate in any way with them, just a happy user.

The easiest way from a PC is to go the feed page ( and then right click the "Play now" icon - then "save as". This let's you download an mp3


> Any other suggestions?

Yes. Link to an mp3 file? This will work, I think, on any phone, any tablet, and any computer using any operating system with any web browser, and I can also save it for later from my web browser, or from the command line (using wget or curl), set up automatic synchronization, etc etc.



Why not simply make the mp3 available? It's definitely the easiest for occasional listeners on desktops or laptops.
