What is Podcasting?

Podcasting is a syndicated audio feed subscription service available online for downloading to your computer or portable media player.

The technology let’s you chose: You pick the programming and listen at your convenience. Once you’ve made your selections, the technology automatically locates the programs you’ve selected, downloads it to your hard drive, and provides updates when new programming is available.

What do I need to hear podcasts?
You should already be able to listen to podcast audio from your computer (provided your computer has a sound card and can play MP3 audio files). If you want to make your podcasts portable, you will need to transfer them from your computer to a portable media device. To take advantage of the automatic subscription feature, you’ll need a podcast subscription software. Your options include the latest version of Apple’s iTunes (which has the software built in), or other services such as Juice, to manage your podcast subscriptions.
