Listening to Podcasts
Podcasts are downloadable radio-style shows you get at the iTunes Music Store (see page 23). Podcasts are organized by shows, episodes within shows, and chapters within episodes. If you stop listening to a podcast and go back to it later, the podcast begins playing from where you left off.
To listen to a podcast: 1 Choose Music > Podcasts, and then choose a show.
Shows appear in reverse chronological order so that you can listen to the most recent one first. You see a blue dot next to shows and episodes you haven’t listened to yet.
2 Choose an episode to play it.
The Now Playing screen displays the show, episode, and date information, along with elapsed and remaining time. Press the Center button to see more information about the podcast. If the podcast includes art, you also see a picture. Podcast art can change during an episode, so you might see several pictures during the podcast.
For more information on podcasts, open iTunes and choose Help > “iTunes and Music Store Help.”Then search for “podcasts.”
Listening to Spoken Word Audio
You can purchase and download audiobooks from the iTunes Music Store or from audible.com and listen to them on your iPod nano.
You can use iTunes to download audiobooks to your iPod nano the same way you download songs. If you stop listening to an audiobook on iPod nano and go back to it later, the audiobook begins playing from where you left off. Unless you’re playing songs from within playlists, iPod nano skips audiobooks when set to shuffle.
You can play audiobooks at speeds faster or slower than normal.
To set the playing speed of an audiobook: m Choose Settings > Audiobooks and choose a speed.
You can also adjust the reading speed from the Now Playing screen while you’re listening to an audiobook. Setting the reading speed only affects audiobooks purchased from the iTunes Music Store or audible.com.
