Finding Free Podcasts on the Internet
While iTunes is great, it is not the only place to find free (or paid) podcasts on the Internet. There are many websites that have a podcast directory. While many of these podcasts listed on these websites are available in iTunes, there might be others that are not. Different websites have different techniques for listening to, downloading, and even subscribing to podcasts through that site. One site I found gives you a link to enter into iTunes for subscribing.
Some of these sites include: Podcast Directory, PodcastAlley, and Digital Podcast.
A third place to find podcasts is directly on a company website. Many podcasts are associated with a website and directly on the website is a link to download the podcast to your computer, listen in your web browser, or a link to the podcast in iTunes. For example, MyMac.com (another site I write for) lists every podcast on the homepage with the links for iTunes and downloading/listening.
Whichever way you choose to find a podcast I highly recommend listening to podcasts if you don't already. I have stopped listening to music on my iPod and listen to podcasts 99% of the time.
