Info and instructions on podcasting

Podcast — what's that?

A podcast is a radio show in the form of an mp3 file that can be downloaded to your computer using free “podcatching” software.  So you never miss an episode, podcatching software can be set up to automatically download the latest programs.  Once delivered to your computer, podcasts can be listened to using freely available audio player software.  No additional hardware or software is needed to listen to podcasts on your computer.

For on-the-go listening, podcasts can be transferred from your computer to a portable digital audio player, such as an iPod.

In short, podcasting is radio on demand, when and where you want it.

How do I get started?

To begin receiving podcasts, you’ll need

  • a computer connected to the internet,

  • free podcatching software, and

  • audio player software capable of playing MP3 files.


Where do I get podcatching software?

Juice (formerly known as Ipodder) is a free and easy-to-use program for Windows, Mac OS X, GNU, Linux, and FreeBSD.

 

For other podcatching software, try these links:


I’ve installed a podcatcher — what next?

If you’re using Juice, go to the “subscriptions” tab and click on the “add new feed” button, shown as a “+” symbol.  Paste or type the URL into the blank “URL” field and click save.

Subscriptions to WDFH podcasts are free.

How do I listen once I've subscribed?
