What is a podcast?
Podcasts are audio files that are automatically delivered directly to your desktop computer, and can be transferred to your iPod or other portable audio MP3 player. You can subscribe to as many podcasts as you want - simply select the podcast below, subscribe to it in your podcast software and the audio will come to you automatically. If you're familiar with RSS, simply thin! k of podcasting as RSS for audio.
How can I use podcasts?
First, you will need to install a "podcatcher," podcasting client software that downloads the audio automatically to your computer. Once the podcatcher software is set up to access MSNBC.com, it will continually poll the MSNBC.com podcast feeds for the latest audio updates. A number of free podcatching software packages are available for download. Popular software includes iTunes, iPodder, RSSRadio and iPodderX. Find a podcast application here.
After installing your podcast application, you can add each podcast manually from the Web site by clicking on the "podcast" button next to the podcast you choose.
Just look for the podcast button!
