What is a Podcast?

A Podcast is an online radio show. Most podcasts that you will find online are FREE. Podcasts are created and produced by people just like you. Someone sitting in front of a computer with an idea. We connect a microphone to the computer and use a free software program to record our thoughts and we begin recording.

Podcasts are the thoughts of someone with something to share. Most of the time it is some form of learning. If I have an expertise and want to share what I know with the world. I can create a podcast and share my thoughts. Sometimes people create podcasts about TV shows and share their thoughts with the world.

I have always enjoyed podcasts because I can pull them onto my smart phone and play them in the car as I travel to and from work. You can put in some ear buds and listen as you are working out or taking a afternoon walk.

So how do you find a podcast to listen to? The best way is to use ITunes. Open it and click on the Store button. Then click on Podcasts. You can then search for just about anything you can think of.

I produce 3 podcasts each week. I hope you can tune into the shows. Also please subscribe. Also I have just created a new You Tube channel for my newest show. The Tech Podcast. Please subscribe to my new You Tube channel at: http://www.youtube.com/thetechpodcastshow.

The New Radio

With each year passing we always seem to have new technology to get us through the day and even through the week. This is by no means new technology, but it maybe new to you? I am talking about PODCASTS. I have been podcasting since 2005 and I now create and produce 4 podcasts each week. I will give you the links at the end of this post.

What is a podcast? A podcast is created by any normal person and sometimes not so normal. Most podcasts are created as either an MP3 or OGG and AAC formats. Each one of these are audio files. They are created by recording your voice onto the computer.

So what do podcasts contain and why would you want to listen to any body sitting around and talking into the computer? If you can think of a subject, I would say there is a podcast out there covering it. You will find people that have a passion for a subject and they want to share the information with the world. Most of the time these are FREE!

So how do you find and listen to podcasts? Your first stop should be ITunes. Download it for free, it works on Windows and Macs. Click on the STORE and then click on PODCASTS. When you find one you wish to listen to just click on it and tune into the show. If you like it click on the SUBSCRIBE button.

At times you will find a podcast you really like to listen to. Before you click on the SUBSCRIBE button, check the latest date on the most current podcast. If the date is longer then a month old the podcaster most likely shut down the show.

You can also check out http://www.spreaker.com. I produce two of my shows live on Spreaker each week. What is nice about this service is that they have created a sort of LIVE radio. You can get the app for you smart phone and tune in live or listen later. Check out my shows and please subscribe.
