I am confused about how to get a podcast to play, or I want to fast-forward/rewind parts of the podcast and can't figure out how

To play a podcast, click on the right arrow (triangle) in the podcast player located directly underneath the title of the podcast that you want to hear.  (Make sure the sound on your computer is turned on!)

To jump forward or go back in the podcast, "grab" the large dot on the horizontal line and drag it forward or backward.  The red portion of the horizontal line represents what you've already listened to.  The time counter may be helpful in saving and finding your place.

To increase or decrease the volume, click on the speaker ("sound" symbol).  Slide the gray bar on small gray horizontal line to adjust the volume up (to the right) or down (to the left).  You can also use the volume control on your computer to further fine-tune the volume.

To pause the podcast, click on the double vertical bars ("pause" symbol) on the right-hand side of the podcast player.

To listen in iTunes or download the podcast, open the podcast article and scroll down to the bottom, below the large podcast screen.  Look to the lower left-hand side and there will be links for either option.

To save the podcast to your computer, click on the text link (mp3 file) below the podcast player and podcast description. If that doesn't work, you might need to right-click the link and open the download in a new window by selecting "Save Link As" or "Open Link in New Tab" instead of simply clicking on the link.
