A podcast is an audio file that you can listen to on your computer or download to
an MP3 player (such as an iPod). Below is a brief overview of how to listen to a
podcast and, if you choose to, subscribe to a podcast. It is great for listening
to NurseZone.com while you're on the go!
If you're reading this, chances are you've already got what you need to listen to
a podcast — the computer you're using right now. If the computer you're on has the
capability of listening to mp3 files (the most common file type podcasts are delivered
in), then you will be able to listen to a podcast. Find the specific podcast you
want to listen to, and click the "play" button.
To listen to our podcasts, you only need the ability to download and listen to mp3
files on your computer. There are numerous programs that allow you to listen to
mp3 files. If you have Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, Apple iTunes, QuickTime,
or Yahoo! Music Jukebox, then simply click the "play" button to begin downloading
and listening to the podcast.
To subscribe to a podcast you will need to download Apple's iTunes or the Yahoo!
Music Jukebox or some other free music software program. The programs bookmark a
podcast for you and alert you when new episodes are available. The advantage of
subscribing to a podcast is that new episodes are delivered to you as soon as they
are ready without you having to keep checking the site. Subscribing to the podcast
is generally achieved by clicking the "subscribe" button for the particular program
you wish to use. Typically, one click is all it takes. You can unsubscribe just
as easily. For more information on how to subscribe to podcasts, visit the iTunes Web site or Yahoo! Music Jukebox Web site.
Yes. You can take podcasts with you if you have a portable MP3 player. Clicking
the "play" button will let you save the podcast episode to your computer. You can
then transfer it to your desired portable device.
