What is Podcasting?

Podcasting allows you to receive and download the latest Extension Radio shows in MP3 audio format. Podcasting is a method of distributing digital sound recordings via the Internet, and enables you to listen to audio files at the time and place of your choosing. You must install podcasting software on your computer. Follow the program's instructions for subscribing to podcasts. You can listen directly to the podcasts from your computer through the software, or on-the-go by synching up a portable MP3 player.
