About Podcasting

Podcasting is a way to automatically download audio files on portable devices such as Apple iPods, other MP3 players, or on your computer for later playback.

To subscribe to a podcast, you first need software to detect and download the audio. Each podcast provides a URL to tell the software where to get the new audio content. All podcast software includes a field where you paste the URL of the podcast and a Subscribe button or other way to indicate you want to automatically download new content.
