What is podcasting?
As defined by Wikipedia, "Podcasting is a new term for the online publishing of files in a way that allows for the subscription-like syndication and distribution of files as they become available. Most podcasts are audio in MP3 format, syndicated through the RSS protocol." In other words, a podcast feed is a syndicated RSS newsfeed, only with audio files included for download instead of Web pages.
Need podcasting software?
Unless you use iTunes 4.9 or later, which supports podcasts natively, you'll need to download and install a free podcast client such as iPodder (Windows, Mac, and Linux versions) and then point it to the podcast's RSS feed URL. If you have a music jukebox program such as iTunes, then your downloaded podcast may begin to play automatically. If you do not have a music jukebox program, the downloaded MP3 file will usually reside at the default download location on your hard drive.
