After receiving a few different emails and tweets about listening to Talking Red I just wanted to give everyone a few different options that other listeners have recommended.
The easiest way is to download the podcast directly from each post on this site. There is a direct download link at the bottom of each episode post. The file will download as an mp3 so you can listen to it the same way you would as any song file. Each episode can be streamed in a new internet explorer window by clicking the "Pod" link at the top.
The next easier way is to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes. You can search "Talking Red" in the iTunes store or go to this link. On that site you have to click on "view in iTunes" which will load it up in the store. In iTunes you can also rate the show and leave comments! By subscribing on iTunes, it will automatically download new episodes the day they are released (normally Sunday nights).
For iPhone users, I've been told by @Vbottino that iPhones wont download anything over 20mb's over the 3g network. You can stream it though through this website or if you can connect to a WIFI network, you can download it directly to your phone.
For Android users, listners have recommended two different programs. The first is Google Listen which was recommended by @ryeadams. You are going to need the RSS feed which is www.talkingred.libsyn.com/rss. The program is in the BETA stages of development but seems easy enough to use. There is another similar program which was recommended by @ascangel and he uses DoggCatcher . I've not used this service either but I assume that it works similar to Google Listen and you will also need the RSS feed.
If you don't want to download a file, you can also go to In Lou We Trust and stream each episode through a JAVA plug in. I will also try and make that available on this site in the future.
Thanks for your conintued listenership and feel free to leave more ways to listen to the show in the comments section, in the email (talkingred[@]gmail.com) or on twitter.
