Help / FAQs
What Is Podcasting?
Podcasting is a subscription method for publishing audio files (typically MP3 audio) published in a way that allows subscribers to receive an automatic notification that new shows are available, automatically downloading them to a computer and transferring the podcasts to a portable media player. This is comparable to having on demand cable, with the cable box automatically downloading new shows as they become available.
Why is called Podcasting?
The name comes from iPod and broadcasting, which has managed to cause confusion because an iPod is not needed to listen to podcasts. Regardless the name has stuck.
Do I need an iPod to listen to the podcasts?
No. Because podcasts are typically saved in MP3 format, they can also be listened to on most portable media devices and nearly any computer.
What equipment do I need to start listening to podcasts?
You don’t really need anything, other than a computer and a internet connection. But to truly enjoy the podcast revolution you better have some podcast software, that let you subscribe to and manage podcasts, and a mp3 player, that lets you take podcasts with you anywhere, and listen to it at anytime you want.
Where can I download Podcast software?
