  Podcasting Basics and FAQ's
       
Q: What is podcasting?

A podcast is an audio file (typically an MP3), published in a way that makes it easy for you to subscribe and download it to your MP3 player. You'll love this because you can listen to it whenever and wherever you want.

Q: What is an RSS feed?

An RSS (Relatively Simple Syndication) feed works kind of like programming your VCR to record your favorite TV show for later viewing. The only difference is that these are Audio MP3's and Video MP4's that you can listen to and view on your Personal Portable Device. The RSS enables your software to check for new files and automatically downloads them to a folder on your PC or Mac. These files can then be easily transferred to any portable media player that supports MP3 or MP4 files.

Q: Do I need an iPod to get your feed?

No, you do not need an iPod, any Mp3/4 compatibale device will work. Almost all portable media players support MP3, including Sony, Rio, Creative, Palm Devices, Pocket PCs etc. And many cell phones support both MP3 and MP4 formats. On a personal note, I'm counting on my Apple investments to supplement the costs for my kids college, so I hope you'll try the amazing and elegant iPod.

Q: Do I need to use i-tunes?

No. However, as one of the pioneers of Podcasting, Apple has put a great deal of time and thought into this Podcasting system and so far they have the easiest delivery system available. You simply add the IronDove RSS feed to your iTunes Podcast Library and the feed automatically sends you my new material when it's available.

Q: How Do I Subscribe to a Podcast?

We make it easy for you to subscribe to our Podcasts. All you need is an aggregator program or iTunes. Then you can click our Subscribe button and cut and copy the Rss feed into your program. That is it, you are ready to go! IronDove, On-Demand Audio and Video Programming is also available via RSS subscription. Please see our 'Subscribe' page for some of our favorites.
