  11. How are files organized on the ShasPod?

    The ShasPod was converted from tapes. As such, they are indexed first by Masechta and then by tape (side A then side B). We recommend using the ShasPod as a tool to learn the Daf Yomi according to the Daf Yomi calendar. As a reference tool, the ShasPod is a little more difficult to use. There will be an index database on the website shortly wherein users can enter where each daf starts and stops for the benefit of the other ShasPod users.
