Q: what is a podcast?
A: A podcast is a piece of downloadable audio. The term comes from the popularity of the Apple iPod (that's where the term podcast comes from).
Q: Do I need an iPod to enjoy podcasts?
A: Not necessarily - there are many ways to enjoy podcasts. An iPod makes it easy because the latest version of iTunes integrates podcasts and automatically downloads the latest ones to your iPod.
Q: What other ways can I hear podcasts?
A: Free software like ipodder can check for updated podcasts. You would then either manually copy them to your MP3 player, or listen right there on your computer. If you use an MP3 player other than an iPod, you might try Podcatcher On A Stick, which works with any hard-drive-based MP3 player. If you prefer to just use your internet browser, you can join (free) bloglines and listen to podcasts using your computer's speakers.
Q: So how do I get your podcast?
A: There are multiple ways, here are a few:
into the "feeds" or "properties" field. You'll then automatically know when the feed is updated with new material!
Q: Do you prefer any of these in particular?
A: Other than iTunes, I really like Bloglines, because it's simple and web-based. The website at Podcatcher On A Stick has a instructional video narrated by a guy with a thick German accent, which is kinda funny, too.
Q: Anything else?
A: Yes, you can vote for my podcast by visiting Podcast Alley! You can also listen to the current episode of Buzz's Podcast there.
That's it! Enjoy and as we get time, we'll add more podcasts: interviews with your favorite country stars, more bits, and anything else we can think of. Suggestions are welcome! Feel free to add your comments!
