Alright, I will assume the podcast files are already on the BlackBerry. Odds are they files are mp3. if the files are in a different format and you want mp3, then you will have to convert them. Do a search for an application for converting from whatever format you have to mp3. I have not done it in a long time, but I know I used a free trial version of an application that converted between several common audio formats. So, search and I am sure you will find something free or at least not too expensive.
The question is where are the files on the BlackBerry. They should be on a microSD media card. If you are not using one, you should be. If the files on in main memory, move them to a media card.
There are several ways to copy or move the files to a computer. If the files are smaller than about 3MB, you can email them to yourself. If you are using something like Dropbox, you can use that. You can use Desktop Manager to sync the files to your computer (make sure the files are in the music folder in the BlackBerry directory on the media catd). Or, you can enable mass storage mode on the BlackBerry and the computer will see the media card as a drive and you can drag and drop the files from the media card to a folder on the computer, and vice versa. You might also remove the microSD card from the BlackBerry and use it in a card reader on a computer in a card reader using a microSD X SD card adapter.
If you do not have Desktop Manager, download and install it from blackberry.com.
