    You could always download the mp3 from the main podcast page and listen on your computer. Strange it's not coming up on the listen now popup, though.....

    The best way to manually download the show is the rss feed. The show is almost always up there first, even before the listen now feature. If you have IE 7 you have a built in rss reader. If you don’t there is a free reader available through Google. You can right click and save the mp3 file directly from the rss feed or listen directly with the proper IE plug ins.

    I will try to switch back to English from Jargon. IE 7 is Internet Explorer 7. If you use Windows XP or Vista and have “tabs” on the top of your Internet Explorer page then you have IE7. If you go up to the very top of your Internet Explorer page and click on Help and then select “About Internet Explorer” you will see Version: ?.?.?.?. If the first ? is a 7 you have it.

    Now, an rss feed is an automatically updated database feed and the technical stuff I’m sure you don’t care about. Basicaly, if you click on http://www.wdwinfo.com/podcast/unplugged.xml and you will see the options if you have at least Internet Explorer 7. You will see all the show descriptions and then a pair of headphones followed by the filename as something.mp3. Just right click on the file and select Save As… You can save the file to your computer and then just double click it and you can listen.

    If you do not have IR 7 you will need a separate reader for the rss feed. The easiest one to use is at www.google.com/reader and they have a tutorial on how to sign up and use it .

    Hopefully I kept the jargon to a minimum. Of course maybe you don’t care (and I wouldn’t blame you) and you can just wait for the listen now to be updated.
