What is a Podcast Anyway?
A podcast is a pre-recorded audio program you download onto your computer and listen to whenever you want.
You don't need an iPod to play podcasts. All you need is free software called a "podcatcher." There are lots of podcatchers available. You can even use free online podcatchers to avoid installng software.
You can download specific MedRetreat podcasts by checking the podcast listing below, or subscribe to our free podcast "feed" so you instantly know when new podcasts are available. A "feed" is just a listing of available podcasts. You supply your podcatcher with the Web address (URL) to our "feed" and it automatically checks and notifies you when a new podcast is posted.
Once the podcast is on your computer you can listen to it using your podcatcher, your favorite media player, or transfer it onto your iPod or MP3 player to listen to anytime you want.
What's the Benefit in Subscribing to MedRetreat's Free Podcast Feed?
We all know time is pretty tight these days. You could check all your favorite Web sites everyday to find out when new podcasts are available, but who has time for that? By subscribing to our free podcast feed you leave it to the software to check-in for you. That way you waste no time, yet never miss a single show.
Sounds Great. What Do I Need to Listen to These Podcasts?
If you have an Internet connection and a computer that plays sound, you have all the physical hardware you'll need to get and play podcasts.
To download podcasts, you'll use one of the podcatchers listed below.
To play podcasts you can use your podcatcher or your favorite media player (like iTunes or Windows Media Player).
And if you want to take podcasts with you, you'll need a portable media player like an iPod, an iRiver, or another MP3 player. All you do is download the podcasts onto your computer and transfer them onto your MP3 player. If you use Apple iTunes, the downloading and transfer to your iPod gets handled automatically.
How Do I Get These Podcasts?
If you want to subscribe to a podcast and automatically receive new topics as soon as they're available (subscribing is free, by the way), there's three ways to do it:
1. Subscribe using iTunes:
If you have iTunes installed, just click the iTunes icon below to subscribe. iTunes will load, add our podcast to your iTunes library, and from then on, every new podcast will be downloaded into iTunes and, optionally, into your iPod or MP3 player.
2. With web-based podcatchers. Click your choice below:
