How to Start Podcasting
The basic requirements for podcasting are a computer, podcasting software and an Internet connection. To take your podcast with you, an iPod or any MP3 player is needed. To begin, download and install podcasting software onto your computer (PC or Mac). Though every application is different, there are generally directions to "add" a podcast feed (usually just as simple as copying and pasting the podcast URL, which are found below, into your podcasting application). The next time you "Check for New Podcasts", an MP3 of your selected KCUR program will be on your computer, and if you're set up for it, on your iPod or MP3 player as well. NOTE: KCUR's Podcast links (and FAQ) are listed in a section at the bottom of the "In the News" page.
