I'm Jack Clark, host of the Blast the Right podcast, two years old and going strong.
If this is the first time you're listening to Blast The Right, please go back to last week's podcast if you want to know what the regular, prerecorded show is like.
The regular prerecorded show now comes out every other week. Listeners suggested I include the recently started live show in this feed on the off weeks.
So what you're about to hear is the live call-in version of the show. The sound quality is not great, but you'll get used to it real quickly.
On this podcast home page at the bottom of the right-hand column, is a poll where you can vote on whether I should continue including the live show in this feed.
Now here's the full one hour version of the live show. This week features an interview with Chuck Kaufman, head of the Nicaragua Network and also temporary head of Venezuela Solidarity. I've known Chuck for 20 years. He has vast knowledge about US anti-democratic interventions in the Third World. You can expect a lively discussion.
For those who aren't familiar with podcasts, podcasts are a series of mp3 audio files that you download to your computer or portable music device (iPod or other) and then can listen to whenever you want.
You don't need an iPod to listen to podcasts.
Podcast software like iTunes will automatically check a podcast at intervals you specify, and download any new installments.
iTunes is free and very easy to use. http://www.apple.com/itunes/
In iTunes, if you want to subscribe to my podcast, just click on Advanced at the top right, then choose Subscribe to Podcast, and paste in the URL http://feeds.feedburner.com/blasttheright
That's the URL to use for other podcast-friendly software programs as well.
Alternatively, you can just manually download new episodes from my podcast home page as they become available. Here is a link to my podcast's home page: http://www.therationalradical.com/podcast.html
