: When it comes to knowledge, some people say “you can feel it in your bones!” But what about in your soul? Find out why Plato’s theory of forms entails a theory of innate, a priori knowledge in this episode on Platonic epistemology.

      Hi AAA,

      Sorry for the confusion. Most podcast listeners download episodes through iTunes or another app or program that subscribes to the RSS feed!

      For iPhones and iPads, you can use the Podcasts app to search for “The Heritage Podcast” and download episodes. For laptops and desktop computers, you can do the same thing using the iTunes program, which is free to download on iTunes.com . From there you can download the episodes to your computer and keep them wherever you like (iPod, mp3 player, etc).

      For Android phones and tablets, a lot of people use the “Stitcher” app, which you can get from Google Play. In Stitcher, search for The Heritage Podcast and click the plus sign (+), to add it to your Favorites List. When you go to the Favorites list, you can tell it to download new episodes by clicking the gear in the upper right corner. You can find out about that at https://www.stitcher.com .

      If you need any more help, don’t hesitate to shoot me an e-mail < >. Alternatively, here is a link that can guide you on how to listen to podcasts in general:


      Thanks for listening!
