Bookbabble is a free weekly podcast that you can download or directly play off of our website.


What is a podcast?

Podcasting is simply audio content that is stored on the Internet.  Unlike traditional radio, podcasts are readily available for download to your computer or portable media device of choice, to be played at your convenience.  One characteristic of podcasts is that it allows you to subscribe to them using RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds.  This will enable the podcast feed to notified you as and when a new episode becomes available without requiring you to visit the website at regular intervals.
