Kim answers your frequently asked questions:

Q. THESE FREE PODCASTS ARE GREAT! ARE THEY THE SAME THING AS THE SHOW?

A. Remember that Komando FREE Podcasts are not the weekly Kim Komando Show podcasts that only Kim's Club members enjoy.

Komando FREE Podcasts are in-depth conversations with leading decision-makers covering hot tech topics. These podcasts are no longer than 30 minutes in length and are meant to be listened to at your leisure. They are perfect when you're exercising, making dinner or on your daily commute.

Just remember when you visit the RSS link above on some desktop computers, it may appear as a bunch of computer code. That's totally normal!

If all of this sounds like gibberish, don't worry. People who have a third-party podcast player will understand what do with these steps.

Q. HOW CAN I RATE, COMMENT, OR LEAVE A REVIEW FOR KOMANDO PODCASTS?

A. Just like with music, movies and TV shows, you can rate podcasts on iTunes right from your computer, phone or tablet. You do have to use Apple's Podcast app, but it's easy to do! Why should you leave a review? iTunes factors in ratings and reviews when figuring out top charts and featured podcasts. If you like Kim Komando's podcasts, make sure to say so! It helps the podcasts get attention so that we can share insights on all things tech with more great listeners like you!

Follow these easy steps:

Not listening on iTunes? Unfortunately, at this time, Google Play does not offer listeners a way to rate or review podcasts.
