What’s a Podcast?

Lindsay Elitharp | Wednesday, January 14, 2015


Liberty House has launched its first podcast series, Beyond Spare Change. In each episode of Beyond Spare Change, you’ll learn more about a current resident or member of the Liberty House Alumni (a former resident) in their own words. Through a series of open-ended interview questions, Beyond Spare Change provides a speaker-box for our formerly homeless veterans to tell their history and experiences. Our hope is that the stories they share may surprise you, remind you that for many of these men and women homelessness and a military background are small strokes on the larger canvas of life.

Okay, but what’s a podcast?

A podcast is like a radio show on demand, available through the internet. You can listen to the podcast on the website by clicking the “play” button in the media player embedded in the post. This is called “streaming.” You also have the option to download the episode and play it whenever you’d like on your smartphone, computer, tablet, or mp3 player. Programs like iTunes and Stitcher can help you manage the podcasts you listen to and they will even automatically download new episodes of the podcasts you love when you click the “subscribe” option. And the best part? Many podcasts, including Beyond Spare Change, are free!

To listen now, click HERE and select an episode.
