This is Ms.Mary
I'm new here and i don't have any idea of how to download the audio of the listening with mp3 format?

Hello Ms.Mary,

If you right-click on the text to the right of the audio player ('professionals-podcasts-bio-technology.mp3') and then select 'Save As' from the options, you can download the podcast.
