What is 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. Podcast files are sometimes delivered via video files.

What do you need to hear podcasts?
The first thing you need is podcast subscription software. The latest version of Apple's
iTunes (which has the software built in), or other services such as My Yahoo!, Odeo or Juice, manage your podcast subscriptions. You can listen to your subscribed podcast audio downloaded to a computer that has a sound card and can play MP3 audio files. To make your podcast files portable, transfer them from the computer to a portable media device such as an iPod or other MP3 player.

How to subscribe to a podcast?
You may subscribe to many podcasts by copying the subscription link into podcast subscription software or in some cases clicking on buttons for popular tools like iTunes and My Yahoo!
