Frequently Asked Questions
What is Podcasting?
Podcasting is a method of publishing audio broadcasts via the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed of new files (usually MP3s). It became popular in late 2004, largely due to automatic downloading of audio onto portable players or personal computers.
The word "PodCasting" is a merger of the words iPod and broadcasting.
Do I need an iPod to listen?
No. All you need is a computer with software to play mp3 files. Every modern operating system come with a MP3 player built-in.
Why subscribe to this podcast?
To make sure you don’t miss a single podcast, you will want to subscribe to this service. To do that you will need to have a piece of software called an “aggregator.” Many of these applications are free and easy to use. But the easiest and most convenient of the lot seems to be iTunes (version 4.9 and above). There the aggregator is built right in.
Then every time we publish a new podcast, the aggregator will find it and download it automatically to your computer. If you are using iTunes, the podcast will be downloaded to your iPod or iPhone the next time you sync it, and you will be notified.
