A podcast is a way for you to "subscribe" to a program and listen to it when and where you want. It's kind of like TiVo for radio, with the added benefit of portability.

Once you've subscribed to a program's podcast, your podcasting application checks on a regular basis for new episodes of the program and makes them available for download to your computer.


Join Larry Mantle weekdays for lively and in-depth discussions of Los Angeles and Southern California news, politics, science, entertainment, the arts and more. More AirTalk at www.kpcc.org.

Brains On!

Got curious kids? Check out Brains On! It's a podcast featuring science and kids co-produced by KPCC and Minnesota Public Radio. We ask questions and go wherever the answers take us. Sometimes that means talking to a food scientist or a snake handler, other times that means putting on a play about sound waves or writing songs about sleep. A different kid co-hosts each episode. We talk to them about the interesting stuff they’re doing and the things they think about. It’s a science lesson for your ears – so join us and turn your brains on!


Co-produced by CityLab from The Atlantic and KPCC, we'll have conversations about cities of the future and the people creating them.
