Hi John,

I checked the link below and I had a little trouble linking up... did anyone else? I saw the problem, though... on my e-mail browser the last "greater than" symbol is underlined and is part of the link. It shouldn't be. Just make sure the link ends in .xml and it will work. Thank you for posting the podcast to the listserv, John. I appreciate it. :) I apologize to all ahead of time for my bad pronunciation of Chilean names and a bit of ignorance on the tech specs of the AS-1, but I hope you get something out of it for your own classes nonetheless.

I want to draw your attention to the podcasts that Michael Breed is
generating. Michael is an Earth Science teacher in Binghamton, NY,
who runs one of the IRIS AS-1 instruments. He's made podcasts on
many subjects for his class (and others) to enjoy.

His Episode 23 - Seismology Rocks!
http://www.cvcsd.stier.org/Podcast/mbreed/Secure/Uploads/lgdtesci.xml
is all about seismology and his AS-1.

Michael describes below how to listen to his podcasts.

Enjoy,
John

I throw the music in for the kids and to help out some indie
bands. It's just some "extra" stuff I add. If you're "subscribed"
it means you'll be notified of new episodes. On iTunes, they
download automatically. Probably using iTunes is the easiest way...
to find me, just download and install iTunes from Apple's website
(it's free). Go to the iTunes Store and do a search for Michael
Breed. "Let's Get Down To Earth... Science" will be a
result. Anyone can subscribe for free.

Otherwise, any RSS capable reader such as Safari, Firefox, etc. can
read the feed by going to
http://www.cvcsd.stier.org/Podcast/mbreed/Secure/Uploads/lgdtesci.xml.
Googling "Let's get down to earth science" will get the feed on the
first hit. I hope you liked the show :) People from all over the
world listen, believe it or not. I just had a musician whose music
I played offer to write and record a theme song for me. He sent me
a free CD too. Cool stuff!

Hi Mike,

Michael Hubenthal sent me the link to your Podcase on the AS1. Very nice!

I would like to send an announcement to the IRISED list so the other
educators can hear what you're up to.

...

What is the easiest way for teachers to listen to a podcast? I
"subscribed" using Google, but am not sure what it means to be subscribed.

Cheers,
John
