Simply copy the URL in the address bar of your browser and paste it into your podcasting application. Or, simply copy and paste the URL below into your software. Alternately, you can simply drag the XML graphic directly into the iTunes applications or open iTunes first and do a keyword search for "Sun-Earth Day" in the podcast directory.

What do I get when I've subscribed?
