Acton Institute audio files are now available via a “podcast.”

A podcast is similar to an RSS feed (in fact it is an RSS feed) but the intention is to describe audio files. These files are read by a podcast aggregator which will automatically download the audio files associated with the podcast and allow you to listen to them on your computer. Many aggregators will also automatically transfer the downloaded files to the music library on your computer and even to your iPod – thus the name “podcast.”

All new files uploaded to the Acton website will be podcasted.

The Acton podcast can be found here.

Links to sample podcast readers are available here.
