What is Podcasting?
The term Podcasting is a combination of two words -
iPod and Broadcasting.
A podcast is simply a radio show delivered over the internet. The great thing is that once it’s downloaded to your computer you then have the freedom to listen to it at any time or transfer the show to an iPod or other mp3 player for listening on the move.
You do not need an iPod to listen to podcasts!
See the “How to Listen” page for details.
A podcast can be subscribed to much in the same way that you might decide to subscribe to a magazine. Nearly all podcast subscriptions (including this show) are FREE! When you subscribe to a podcast, your computer will regularly check the website of the radio show to see whether there is a new episode available. If there is then the new episode is automatically downloaded to your computer.
