You actually have a couple of options for managing and watching the podcast feed for GSoci 110:

Option 1.
The simplest option is to come straight to this page. As you will see scrolling through the episodes posted below, for this class most all of the lectures have already been recorded and will be available from the very start of the term. For this reason, I have ordered the episodes in standard chronological order – that is, starting with the “oldest”/earliest episode on top and moving to the “newest”/most recent episodes as you move down the list. Once an episode is “up” here on the page it will stay “up” so that you can watch it whenever, however often and at whatever speed you wish.

Option 2.
You can also subscribe to the podcast feed using iTunes. Fundamentally this is no different than Option 1, but the potential advantage (particularly if you are already a consumer of podcasts outside of class) is that it allows you to manage and watch the episodes within iTunes on your computer, or to download the episodes to a portable player (iPod, iPad, iPhone, etc.) that you sync with iTunes.

If you have iTunes installed on your computer, clicking the “Subscribe in iTunes” button (the one connected to your class, of course) over there on the right side of this page will launch iTunes (if it isn’t currently open) and automatically subscribe you to the podcast feed. Once you’ve done this, iTunes will, every time you “refresh” your podcast list or set iTunes to automatically refresh at certain intervals, download each episode and have it waiting for you. Once downloaded into iTunes, those episodes are stored on your computer and can be viewed even when you don’t have an internet/network connection.

[One trick with iTunes: you may also need to go to the Preferences panel in iTunes and tell it to show “Podcasts” in your Library menu in order to see the Podcasts option in the left-hand column (alongside “Music”, “Movies” and so forth), if it does not currently appear there in your iTunes window]
