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, you can check out last week's podcast if you want to know what the regular, prerecorded show is like. That's the show which is the most listened to grass roots progressive podcast in the country.
What you're about to hear right now, is a sample of the recently started, live call-in version of the show. (Audio quality is not as good as the prerecorded show.)
The guest is Mark Potok of the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is probably the world's leading organization fighting right-wing hate groups. The SPLC is most famous for shutting down Klan and other hate groups through civil lawsuits.
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
