It’s Free! And Easy! And You Don’t Need an iPod! Podcasting lets you automatically receive the latest episode of a pre-recorded programme as soon as it’s available. You need to “subscribe” to receive a podcast, rather like you might subscribe to a magazine and get it delivered each week. An important difference is that – it’s free! And you can stop receiving the podcasts at any time.
In order to sign up for a podcast you need an internet connection and a piece of podcast software which is usually available free of charge. This software will check our podcast feed for new episodes and automatically download them for you.
There are many “podcatchers” from which to choose. The steps you go though in order to subscribe to a podcast will vary depending on which software you choose. All are easy to set-up, most in three clicks or less!
