Wait, What's a Podcast?

​A podcast is basically a talk radio show that you listen to online or download to your computer or device. I love them because you can listen while driving, cooking, cleaning, and maybe even grading (although that might not be such a good idea.)

If you use an iPhone, you can find and listen to the show right from the Podcast app (it comes preloaded on iPhones). You can even set it up to automatically download new episodes or to update you when new episodes are released. Click here to view or subscribe to the show on iTunes.

For Android users (or if you want to listen on your desktop), you can use a free app called Stitcher to listen or subscribe. Click here to view or subscribe to the show on Stitcher.

You can also listen to each episode directly from the Teach 4 the Heart website. Just click on an episode above & you'll see the podcast logo & a play button to listen to that episode.
