Podcasts

Podcasting is a way of publishing audio broadcasts via the Internet. Specifically, podcasts are feeds (such as RSS feeds) that contain digital audio files, such as MP3 files. You can subscribe to feeds using software that periodically checks for and downloads new content automatically. This software is available on the Web and is generally free; here is a sampling of available programs (please note, Eight does not endorse or guarantee any particular software program):

For Windows/PC: iTunes · iPodder · Doppler · Blog Matrix Sparks!
For Mac: iTunes · iPodderX · Playpod

To subscribe to a podcast, copy the address provided below and follow your podcast software's instructions. Once you subscribe, you can listen to the podcast on your computer or transfer it to a portable MP3 player, such as an iPod.
