I was just talking to some readers of my blog who were asking me when I was going to do a second episode of the Paulitics Podcast.
I actually did Episode #2 of the podcast a while back and I just released Episode #3 of the podcast yesterday evening, so both are up and available for download to either your computer or iPod (or other .mp3 player).
For those of you who are interested, you can either check the podcast’s main page regularly for new updates at www.paulitics.mypodcast.com or, probably easier for you, you can download any number of free “podcast catchers” which will automatically download the latest episode of all of your favourite podcasts to your computer and then you don’t have to go hunting around for episodes every time a new one is published.
Conversely, if you like the idea of having a program bring you podcasts but don’t want them automatically downloaded, you can use an RSS feed aggregator to catch as many podcasts as you like (such as www.feedbucket.com).
Two of my favourite podcasts which you can put into your podcast catcher or iTunes by copy the hyperlink are:
Democracy Now!: http://www.democracynow.org/podcast.xml
Big Ideas: http://www.tvo.org/TVOspecial3/WebObjects/TVOMedia.woa?bigideasfeed
Also, the Paulitics podcast hyperlink to copy into your podcast catcher is:
Or, conversely, you can download or listen to episode #2 featuring a talk by Alex Callinicos on imperialism and empire from a theoretical perspective here.
And you can download or listen to episode #3 featuring a talk by the fantastic orator Michael Parenti on globalization and capitalism here. (Parenti’s talk is much less theoretical than Callinicos’s talk).
