How 2 . . . Mix your own NPR podcast
National Public Radio has hundreds of great podcasts on music, technology, news, politics and lots of other topics. But those are broad categories that might not always have stories you want to hear. Now, you can create your own custom podcast of stories from NPR.
1. Go to NPR.org/podcast.
2. In the first blank field, give your podcast a name. In the next field, enter a search term that interests you, such as “technology,” or ” NASA.” You can also enter the name of a specific reporter or series. Then click on the plus sign next to that field.
3. You will now see a preview of some of the items your podcast will include. If it’s overwhelming, or if it doesn’t include stories that interest you, go back to the field above and hit the minus sign to remove that search term and enter a new one, perhaps a narrower search, such as “cell phones” or “space shuttle.” You can enter another search term on another blank field if you want your podcasts to include multiple topics that might not be related, such as music and sports.
