What is a podcast?
A podcast is a way of delivering a file to your computer or device automatically. In this case, you would receive The Radio Ecoshock Show, the weekly one hour broadcast. They are in mp3 file format.
A podcast is a like TIVO for radio. You can listen later, when you want to, without waiting for it to come up on radio, and without missing it. Some people set their computers up to automatically put the file on their iPod or mp3 player. Then they listen on the commute, at the gym, in bed, or wherever. Or, just listen on your computer. You never miss a program – and it’s usually important information big TV and radio stations never tell you.
OK, What do I need to do?
It’s pretty simple. You need to have a podcast receiver. This free software will let you select from thousands of podcasts, to make your own programming. My favorite is now called “Juice” (formerly iPodder, the classic software designed by Adam Curry, the father of podcasting.) Download Juice for free, or try “Doppler,” and there are other popular podcast receiver software packages out there. Search for “download podcast receiver” using your favorite search engine. The majority of our subscribers now use iTunes to get the podcast. These programs are small, non-invasive, safe to use. Once installed, open the program and select your feeds from a list, or enter the feed URL in the box.
Your podcast receiver will either automatically check for new podcasts, or you can choose to check when you want to download. Once downloaded, you can choose to have your media player start playing right away, or play it later.
