Subscribe to podcasts

A podcast is an audio file that is available on your computer for listening or downloading to a portable media device or mp3 player.

Podcasts are usually parts of a series and distributed as individual episodes using RSS feeds. If you choose to subscribe to a series, new episodes will be automatically downloaded to your computer via special free software.

To receive a podcast, you will need a feed reader (also referred to as a news reader or aggregator) or podcasting software (e.g. iTunes) on your computer and you must subscribe to the podcast.

To subscribe to the podcast, right click on the "Subscribe" link and select "Copy Shortcut" (Internet Explorer) or "Copy Link Location" (Mozilla Firefox). You then paste the URL into your feed reader or podcastiing software.

In iTunes, you can do this by going to the Advanced menu and selecting "Subscribe to Podcast". You can then paste the link and select "OK" to subscribe to the podcast.
