About Podcasts

The NCMS is now offering several podcasts to help keep you informed of the latest news in the legislature, in regulatory affairs and in practice management.

All podcasts are free. The audio files go directly to your computer to transfer to an MP3 player, iPod or other audio player software.

You will need podcast receiver software to subscribe. A free, open-source podcast receiver called “Juice” is available from the link below. You can also use Apple's iTunes software, or any other podcast-enabled software you choose.

Once you install the podcast receiver, you have an option to add a feed. Select your feed then copy this link and paste it into the new feed field in your software.

Your podcast receiver software should now check NCMS podcast at whatever interval you specified and alert you to (and/or download) the latest episodes of our show.

To listen to our show, you need a media player capable of playing MP3 files, which is just about every media player in existence. If you use a Windows PC, you may already have Windows Media Player installed. If you are using a Mac, you probably have Quicktime installed. If not, you can choose one of the other players.
