How can I subscribe to this podcast? Using iTunes, you can click on the link to the iTunes Music store. Once inside the music store, on the left side of the window is a link for podcasts. Once you are in the podcast section, you can browse around to find podcasts that you like. There is also a Search All Podcasts link. Almost all podcasts are free to download. Once you find a podcast to which you would like to subscribe, you can click the Subscribe link. Now iTunes will check for new episodes when you open up iTunes.
