What is a Podcast and how do I subscribe?
A podcast is rich media, such as audio (podcast) or video (vodcast), distributed via RSS (Really Simple Syndication), and provides updates whenever there is new content. You can listen to the files on your computer or load them on your media player.
To get started, all you need is a web-based podcaster, such as the ones listed below. You will then add the content feed to the podcaster by copying and pasting the provided URL into the software. The software will automatically check for updates and download the files to your computer.
- iTunes (Windows / Mac OS X)
- Juice (Windows / Mac OS X / Linux)
- iPodder Lemon (Windows / Mac OS X / Linux)
Some podcasts allow you to listen without subscribing - look for a Listen button.
