Podcasting has become a popular way of broadcasting discussions about every conceivable topic, including politics, art, humor, music, religion and culture in general. Fueled partly by rampant dissatisfaction with the limited choices on the commercial-ridden radio dial, Podcasting has blossomed into a cornucopia of listening choices.
There’s a ton of independent music, as well as a variety of talk shows, both amateur and professional. Even the big broadcasters are getting in on the act.
Podcasts are kind of like the audio equivalent of blogs – they are set up so that smart software can check periodically for new shows, and then download those new shows to your PC, iPod or MP3 Player for listening anytime you like.
Some podcasters make their casts easily downloadable. In other cases, you will need a program like Applian Technologies Replay Media Catcher to record your podcast. You’ll find it’s easy and fun to record podcasts with this flexible program.
