WHAT IS PODCASTING? Podcasting is when your iPod (or other MP3 player) meets broadcasting (hence the term podcasting). Here's what happens: you subscribe to a feed, and audio files are automatically downloaded so you can listen on your MP3 player. By subscribing to Corvair Center podcasts, your computer will download the latest shows, allowing you to stay in the Corvair loop. Unlike traditional radio you can listen whenever you want, wherever you want. Read more about podcasting in Wikipedia or San Diego Podcast Productions.
HOW DO I SUBSCRIBE TO THIS OR OTHER PODCASTS: To automatically receive Corvair Center's podcasts, you need to install an application that downloads podcasts, iTunes is cross-platform, and very popular. Once you have downloaded and installed iTunes you need to subscribe to the feeds you want. If you use iTunes, click the "Open in iTunes" links above and subscribe in iTunes. After subscribing to the feeds you want, you'll need to "Update" or "Check for new podcasts" to begin downloading. If you're having trouble, try the Help menu or visit the iTunes Web site for help. You can also subscribe using Yahoo Podcasts.
CANT I JUST KEEP COMING TO THIS GREAT WEBSITE AND LISTEN TO IT WITHOUT DOWNLOADING? Yes, but you better come back every month!
WHAT IF I WANT TO PUT THIS GREAT PODCAST ON MY PHONE, PDA, ETC., SO I CAN LISTEN TO IT IN MY CORVAIR? WHAT DO I DO? There are two ways to do this. If you wish to download a particular episode of Corvair Center's Podcast, right click on the "download here" and select "Save Target As" Now just like any other computer file you need to choose where you want it saved. For the proud Apple users, like me, option click and select "Save Link As" If you have subscribed using iTunes just drag the file from your podcast directory in iTunes to your phone memory stick, PDA, Etc.
WHAT ARE RSS FEEDS? include text headlines and summaries that keep you updated on the latest news stories. Read more about RSS feeds in Wikipedia. Currently Corvair Center's Podcast does not have an RSS feed and you cannot yet subscribe. I will be implementing this sooooon!
ENJOY - Happy Podcasting in your Corvair!
