Re: The Force-Cast Episode Index

Some of these episode links (like say, those in April 2007) don't seem to offer a way to download the specific episode directly, but rather give you a podtrack player link option that only shows the last 10 or so episodes. Is there a way to circumvent this? A URL naming convention of something to get the direct episode link?

Great list though, awesome to see it all in one place!

Look for the pic showing a girl holding an iPod, which says "download and listen". Right click on the icon and select "Download linked file as". The file will be called redirect.mp3, but that's the file you want.

Totally! But what about episodes like this that do not have the girl?

April 1st, 2007
There actually is a miniscule, pixel-sized link to the audio file on that page. I pressed the Tab key a bunch of times and looked at Firefox's status bar until I saw this: http://www.theforce.net/podcast/files/Forcecast-040107.mp3 . That told me that the link was there, but that it wasn't visible because it was tiny. Here's what I recommend if you're using Firefox:

1. Click once near the episode description text on the show page. (For the link you provided, click once in between the letters of the word "Mark" in the phrase "Mark our words.")
2. Press the Tab key three times, and if it works for you as it did for me, you'll have the direct MP3 link selected.
3. Press enter, and the MP3 link will open.
4. The audio file will play in your browser, but you can pause it and then go to File --> Save Page As.
5. You can now save the MP3 file anywhere you want.

Wow, that is a lot of work, but so very cool that you did it.

Now comes the inevitable question, anyone have a recommendation for a good mp3 ripping software where i can cut out the songs from the GoM's?

There are many excellent mp3 trimmers available for free download. I personally use the aptly named MP3 Trimmer for Mac. I'm sure there are lots of trimmers for Windows, too.

I'd just stick the file in Audacity and trim away.
