iTunes allows you to play podcasts. You can add podcast episodes to your iTunes library by subscribing to them in the iTunes Store or on any Web site that offers a podcast.

1

Select the Podcasts option in the Library Section of the Source pane and choose List or Cover Flow view.

The podcasts appear in the Song List pane.

2

Select the podcast in List view or in the list under the Cover Flow view, and then click the triangle to see its episodes.

The triangle rotates, and a list of episodes appears beneath the podcast.

3

Select the podcast and then click the Play button.

You can use the iTunes playback controls to fast-forward or rewind the podcast or play it from any point. The blue dot next to a podcast means you haven’t yet played it. As soon as you start listening to a podcast, the dot disappears.
