What is a podcast?

Podcasting is a method of distributing files, such as audio programs or music videos, over the Internet. Then they are played using mobile devices such as mp3 players and personal computers.

There are more and more of these now on the net. For example Virgin Radio do some great podcasts. Here is how you would subscribe to one of them ...

Al Murray podcastReally a podcast is like having a subscription to all your favorite shows. When you subscribe to a podcast, your computer will automatically download new shows when they become available ... Let's take "The Al Murray Show" as an example.

Sunday afternoons from 4.00pm: Pull up a stool to the Virgin Radio bar, and let the nation's favourite pub landlord, Al Murray, serve up some music, meat, and merriment for a cracking Sunday afternoon.

The Virgin page Get the Podcast gives you the following

feed address:

You will find that every podcast will give you an address like this.

To download a podcast using these addresses, you just need a computer with an internet connection and a some podcast software. Juice (freeware) is a good choice but you can try any of the ones further down the page, or just search google for free podcasting software.

screenshotUsing Juice as an example you would click on the Tools menu at the top and click "Add a Feed".

Simple add the feed address. Then all you do is click the Green "Check for new podcasts" button on the left and the lastest podcast will be downloaded to your computer.

From then on whenever you use Juice you will get the latest podcasts that you have added to Juice.

Then you just use your normal media player or mp3 player to play the file.
