tabWhat is Podcasting? 
Podcasting is a method of publishing audio and video broadcasts via the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed of new files (usually MP3s). Many content providers offer podcast feeds at no cost. These feeds deliver broadcasts to your desktop. You can listen to these files on your computer or load them on to your portable digital player and take them with you.

The word "podcasting" combines the words "broadcasting" and "iPod." The term can be misleading since neither podcasting nor listening to podcasts requires an iPod or any portable music player.

Listeners can subscribe to feeds using "podcatching" software (a type of aggregator), which periodically checks for and downloads new content automatically. Any digital audio player or computer with audio-playing software can play podcasts.
tabHow to Subscribe 
First and foremost, you will need an application that can manage your podcast subscriptions. A list of the most widely available podcast software is on the right.

Once the podcast software is installed, all that remains is subscribing to the podcast.
