In order to save class time, Judith asked me to give you a quick explanation of Podcasts via the blog. Podcasts are basically broadcasts over the Internet. The definition of a Podcast is as follows:
Podcast: A digital audio file made available on the Internet for downloading to a computer or mobile device, typically available as a series, new installments of which can be received by subscribers automatically.
So, while you're sitting there trying to figure out how to break through a 'brick wall', you might consider a short distraction by checking out what's available to listen to. You can find Podcasts by doing a Google search looking for 'genealogy podcasts'. Cyndi's List, which comes up in the search, has a wide selection of available podcasts. Others listed in the search are Genealody Guys and Genealody Gems. I've listed the links below.
Most of the Podcast sites provide a description of the current topic as well as topics from previous episodes. When you find a subject which interests you, just click on it to listen. Don't forget to turn on your speakers!
