Ahhhhh, the spoken word. I just love the sound of my own voice. Now you can enjoy it, too! Yippee!

What is a podcast? It's a geeky way of saying, "I just put a sound file on my website that you can download and listen to." You don't need an iPod, you just need your computer (though it is kinda fun to have an iPod, eh?).

All podcasts on this page are copyright free, so you can download them, burn them onto cd, play them to your class, your friends, annoy your neighbors with them, or blast them on the beach.

Video Podcasts

Video Podcasts about the creation of several of my books. You'll need Quicktime, iTunes or a Video ipod to watch them. Also available on iTunes under podcasts.
