What is a podcast or podcasting?
Podcasting makes an audio file, typically an MP3 file, available online for downloading via an automatic “feed.” You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player.
What do I need to hear a podcast?
The first thing you need is podcast subscription software. Your options include the latest version of Apple’s iTunes (which has the software built in), Juice, or other software to manage your podcast subscriptions. (NOTE: these links take you away from Familylifecanada.com) At this point, you will 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 (like an mp3 player or ipod).
