Introduction to PodcastsPodcasts have been around for several years but many people have never listened to them. Podcasts are great because no matter what your interests are, it is very likely you will find a podcast on that subject. Cooking? Radio Controlled model aircraft? Programing in Java? Quilting? I have found podcasts for all of those subjects.
What is a podcast?Podcasts are audio and/or video shows you can download to your media player, smartphone, or tablet. They cover just about any subject you can imagine and are usually free.
How do I get podcasts on my device?Simple, you use an app called a podcatcher. I will start with the free apps first.
iOS: Podcasts from Apple.
WindowPhone: Podcasts!The podcatcher I use is Pocket Casts from +Shifty Jelly. Pocket Casts works on both IOS and Android but it is not free. Pocket Casts is a really good app and I plan on doing a full review at some point in the future. If you are on Blackberry just search the apps store. You can of course listen to podcasts on your PC or download them to your PC and put them on a media player like an iPod Nano.
