I can listen to these on my computer no problem, but I can't seem to find what that address is that I should punch into my android podcast software to have them download. Any ideas?

Smedleyman was going on about how much he liked noir. He was yammering away about this newfangled "podcast" thing like a twist who'd found a new favorite lipstick.

Me, I clammed up for a minute. Better to get a feel for the room, understand what kind of yeggs were listening in before I showed my hand.

That was when jessamyn walked in. There she was, earthy as the day is long, going on about the Dewey Decimal System in a way that made a man want to check the Encyclopedia Brittanica for something, anything.

"Nice sandals," I said, and she slapped me. "Keep your opinions to yourself," she said, "far as I'm concerned, they're not on display." And she strutted off, swaying that book bag of hers like it was made of money. And I was pretty sure that it was.

I found a table next to the piano. Cortex was there, plunking away some goddamn fifteen minute long thing about some guy named "Matt Howie" and how he had a community blog. It was too much for me to stand.

"Knock that the hell off." He obliged.

"What do you want to hear, boss?" he asked me.

"You know what I want to hear."

"You told me not to play that anymore," he said. I could see the beads of sweat rising on his forehead, like the spray of bullets from a madman's Thompson.

"I know what I said!" I yelled, and threw a threatening look at some fedora guy in the corner, who scampered off with his tail between his legs. "You played it for her, you can play it for me, cortex."

"But, boss..."

"Play it, cortex. Play 'Punch 'em in the Dick."

Damn you, You Should See The Other Guy. Now I have to choose between an in-depth discussion of In a Lonely Place and sleep.

By the way, they don't just go over what is specifically (and temporally) film noir, but expands the idea to other movies that would fit under the label; such as Blade Runner and The Big Lebowski.

Not sure if this helps any, but after trying to find a listing for all of their podcast episodes, I came across this page, with synopses and direct mp3 links for each.

"At least we got Terre Haute, Indiana!"
