Thanks for the welcome Dana.  I have heard of Juice but currently have just 
chosen to download individual shows from BCT as I see ones that interest me.

I am in the midst of listening to your career cast and I am enjoying it.

I know this list will be a lot of help for any of us neophytes who make up 
our minds to learn the art of digital recording.  It is reassuring to know 
there is help and advice available.

Hi Joni:
May I say a good and most welcome to both you and your husband!  I'm glad
you like the media casts.  I have only recently learned this new evolution
internet radio stuff myself but I love it and know you will as well.  Do you
have a cast catching client?  Lots of us use a program called Juice,
available in several places on the internet.  This program will allow you
the opportunity to gather several media casts in one place and listen to
them in your choice of the popular media players.  We all try and help each
other here so if there are issues such as your interest in the talking ATM.
machines, please don't hesitate to post with your questions.
