What is podcasting?
Podcasting is a way of automatically receiving audio and video files. These files can be saved on your PC, laptop or portable device (such as an mp3 player) and played when and where you want.
When you subscribe to a podcast, each new program is automatically sent to you, so you always have the latest news and information.
What do I need to receive a podcast?
To receive podcasts you need to install podcast software on your computer. This software will check for new programs when you connect to the Internet.
There are many podcast software packages available on the Internet, usually free of charge. Commonly used packages can be found at Podcastingnews.com. The major ones include:
