Podcasting is a way to automatically download audio files on portable devices such as Apple iPods, other MP3 players, or on your computer for later playback.
To subscribe to a podcast, you need software that will detect when there's new audio content and download tha audio content onto your MP3 player or computer.
How do I get podcasts?
To subscribe to a podcast, you first need software to detect and download the audio, such as iTunes or iPodder (a list of podcast software is provided below). Each podcast provides a URL (e.g. http://onbeing.org/podcast/podcast.xml) to tell the software where to get the new audio content. All podcast software includes a field where you paste the URL of the podcast and a Subscribe button or other way to indicate you want to automatically download new content. The URLs for American Public Media's podcasts are listed above.
Apple iTunes: Their updated software application (version 4.9) allows for easy access to and management of your podcast selections.
