What is Podcasting?
Podcasts are audio files posted online in MP3 format. They can be easily downloaded for playback on a personal computer or transferred to a portable MP3 player. THN offers a subscription feed to enable automatic downloading of new podcasts through software, such as Apple's iTunes.
What do I need?
You need a computer, some podcasting software, and a portable audio player if you want to take your podcasts on the move. Simply install podcasting software like Apple's iTunes (easy to use), subscribe to some podcasts, and then move the files to your portable audio player.
iTunes is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. You can learn more about iTunes at the Apple iTunes website. You can learn more about Podcasting on Apple.com's Podcasting pages.
