What is a podcast?

A podcast is an audio program that you can listen to on your computer or mobile device. Unlike the radio, you can listen to podcasts anytime you want, at your own convenience. You can stream or download a podcast automatically using a podcast player.

Media organizations such as NPR, magazines and newspapers, and other organizations (like the library!) have podcasts. But so do regular people who record podcasts in their own homes, which means you can find a podcast on just about any topic you’re interested in.

Eden Recommends The Crossover

At our in-person Books & Bites meetings and in our podcast, we talk about books based on themes. For April, we discussed poetry and books about the environment. For May, we'll be discussing sports and exercise.

Here's a novel in verse that I recommended in April but that also fits our May theme. I promise you'll like it, even if you don't like poetry—or sports. For more great sports recommendations, come to our May Books & Bites meeting.
