FoC 003: TV Shows About Dresses: Our Guide To Every Obscure BBC Miniseries Ever Made

 

episodethree

 

In today’s episode we venture into a dearly beloved topic for us both: the British costume drama. We love em — if BBC has made it, we’ve watched it. We may get a little carried away and talk about it for about an hour, but we leave no stone-with-an-accent unturned and we hope this will give you great watching for all those late night nursing sessions, sick days, nights up late with sick babies, or laundry folding marathons. If we’ve missed any we’re dying to know of more!

How To Subscribe to Podcasts

 

Some of you have been asking what the easiest way to listen to our podcast is, and what the best way to know when a new episode has been released – so here I am with all the answers, or at least my very non-technical answers!

Firstly, you can always listen to the podcast right here on the website. If you subscribe to Fountains of Carrots.com through Feedly or Bloglovin you’ll get all our posts complete with new episodes. Or sign up to get emails of all our posts by entering your email address in the box on the left sidebar.

The next easiest route to listen to podcasts is on your phone or devices with a good podcast player app. I have been using the Apple Podcast app forever. With all apps the podcasts you subscribe to will automatically be updated on your device as soon as they become available, then you can also choose notifications to remind you as well.

Here’s how downloading the Apple podcasting app works:

First search “podcast app” in the App Store:

Once you download the app use the search option to find the podcast you’re looking for, then click on the image of the podcast:

Now you can just click the purple subscribe button to subscribe to the podcast:

And here’s what it looks like in your “My Podcasts” menu:

I’ve also heard many people love these other podcast playing apps, Overcast and PodCruncher. They’ll all work much the same as the Apple version.

If you’re looking for an app that works great on Android devices Stitcher is very popular:

Lastly, Apple makes it a bit confusing to subscribe to podcasts on your computer’s iTunes. Here’s a step-by-step in how to click to your favourite podcasts and listen to them anytime on your computer (you can click the images to enlarge):

step6

 

Hope that helps you out if the whole podcasting thing seems confusing. I love subscribing to podcasts and having great things at the ready to listen to when I’m driving, doing some dishes, or folding laundry. With these great ways to listen you’ll also never miss an episode!

 

 

 

 

 

 

FoC 002: Sex, Love, and Life with Jenny Uebbing

 

episodetwo

In today’s episode we have a terrific conversation about the Church’s teachings on sex, marriage, NFP, kids, and our culture with Jenny Uebbing, the eloquent writer behind the blog Mama Needs Coffee.

Jenny devoted the month of October to writing about the Church’s teachings on sex and marriage: dispelling myths, setting out the theology behind the “no’s”, and proclaiming the greatness of family life. We really enjoyed talking with her in light of the recent Synod on the Family that recently took place at the Vatican.

Links in this episode:

Jenny’s blog Mama Needs Coffee and her series: Catholics Do What? (31 Days to Understanding the Catholic Church’s Teaching on Sex and Marriage). And find her on Facebook.
