You actually have a couple of options for managing and watching the podcast feed for Soci 348:

Option 1.
The simplest option is to come straight to this page. This page is dynamic in the sense that it will be updated automatically, each time you load it, to reflect any new episodes. So, you could bookmark this page and check it daily during the week to see the new episodes. 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]

Episode 07: The Debt Crisis & the Rise of the Globalization Project

*** EPISODE NOTE! ***

In compiling the “movie” file for this podcast, I realize that my editing/presentation software inserted a blank black slide instead of the intended one (with bullet points). Because I don’t have time to fix this (which involves re-recording the full episode!) at the moment, I’m putting it up for now. However, you will want to also download the slide collection I used:

Podcast-Debt Crisis & Rise of Globalization Project-Slides

This way you can look at the slide I was working from while listening to the audio.

Sorry for the confusion!
