NOW's Podcast: Podcast XML

NOW's weekly podcast provides an audio version of each week's complete show. The podcast will be available on Friday evenings. You can subscribe to the podcast using this link: http://www.pbs.org/now/podcast.xml. If you are unfamiliar with podcasting learn more below.

What is Podcasting?

Podcasting combines the terms iPod and broadcasting to describe a new kind of radio for your MP3 player and computer. Some have described podcasting as a kind of TiVo for audio on the Internet.

A podcast enables you to easily download audio files to your your MP3 player through your computer. You use a free application to "subscribe" to NOW's feed, the application checks the site regularly and starts a download whenever it finds something new. That means you can listen to NOW's weekly features any time you like, wherever you like! If you want to listen on the go you'll need an MP3 player, but you can also listen to podcasts on your computer.

How do you get started?

Here's what you'll need: a computer, an Internet connection, some free podcasting software, and to take the podcast with you, an MP3 player. That's it!

Use the links listed below to download free podcasting software on your computer, (these applications below are available for both PC and Mac platforms). Next, install the software on your machine and then follow its instructions to "subscribe" to NOW's feed (this is usually as simple as pasting the URL for our podcast into a subscribe box). An audio file of the latest NOW program should now be available within your software and the next time you synch portable MP3 player, NOW will be there. For iTunes users, go to the Advanced tab in the top menu, and select Subscribe to Podcast.
