WHAT IS A PODCAST?
A podcast is a media file that can be downloaded directly or via syndication feeds to computers or portable media players such as an iPod. You can also subscribe to podcast via a syndication feed that will automatically update your computer/MP3 player whenever a new episode is released. Podcasts can be updated hourly, daily, weekly, monthly or whenever the publisher decides to send out a new episode. And you don't need an iPod to listen to one - any MP3 player will do!
You can download the latest the podcast MP3 directly to your computer and play it back through your chosen music media player - Windows Media, Real Player, iTunes or similar. You can then transfer the file to your MP3 player - check your media player Help file for full instructions on how to do this.
To download the file, click the DOWNLOAD button using the right button on your mouse. You will then be given a series of options, one of which should be "Save Target As", "Save File As", "Save Link As" or similar. Choose a folder where you usually store your audio files and click the "Save" button. Then simply open the folder where you saved the file, double-click on the file name (or select the file, choose the "File" option and then select "Open") and the file will then play in your default media player.
For Apple Mac users, the process is the same, but to download the file, all you have to do is select "ctrl" and click on the link. Then follow the instructions as above.
You can subscribe to the podcast and receive each new episode as it's released.
