What is podcasting?

Podcasting is an easy way you can automatically receive information about a wide range of subjects to your computer or portable device. To do this, you subscribe to a podcast by downloading a small piece of software that manages all of your podcast subscriptions. When connected to the internet, the software searches for the latest edition of a program on the host website, and will download it to a folder on your computer, ready for when you next plug in your portable mp3 device. Although it is called a podcast you don't need to have an iPod to download the material. Subscribing to a podcast means that you don't have to manually search for new programs to download them from a website. It happens automatically!

On this page you will find links to a selection of interesting environmental podcasts. Simply click the link and follow the subscription and download directions.
