I'm new to the whole downloading podcasts thing. I used to listen to them straight from NPR itself through my computer-- but with my current job, I'm not able to do such things. I need (read:preferably) free podcasts and audiobooks that I can download to put onto my crappy Sansa clip mp3 player. Is this possible?
I see a lot of "subscribing" to a podcast through iTunes but that isn't going to help me since I don't have an iPod.
So firstly, I'm endlessly fascinated with podcasts like "This American Life". I have all of the episodes from 1995 to 2008-- but no recent episodes and they seem to only be available for download at 99 cents each. That could get expensive! Is there anyway I can download TAL or something like it for free? Where?
Also I see there's a lot of "libraries" of podcasts that are able to be downloaded for a buck each. Is there anything out there like that for free? Is there a program I can use to subscribe to podcasts that will allow me to download them and put them onto my mp3 player?
Any kind of podcast-y related advice you could give me or websites you can guide me to would be super fantastic!
