Podcasting is a method of publishing audio broadcasts via the Internet, allowing users to
subscribe to a feed of new files (usually MP3s). Many content providers offer podcast feeds
at no cost. These feeds deliver audio broadcasts to your desktop. You can listen to these
files on your computer or load them on to your MP3 player and take them with you.
The word "podcasting" combines the words "broadcasting" and "iPod." The term can be
misleading since neither podcasting nor listening to podcasts requires an iPod or any
portable music player.
All you need to get started is podcasting software. Once you download and install the
software, simply subscribe to the Pentagon Channel podcast feed located at http://www.PentagonChannel.mil.
The podcasting software will automatically check for updates and download the files to
your computer so you can load them onto your MP3 player.
Some available free podcasting software:
To receive the Pentagon Channel feeds in your podcasting application, follow the instructions below:

associated with the podcast to which you wish to subscribe into your podcasting application. The podcasting
software will get the news feed and load it into your application, automatically updating every day so that
you will have the latest version delivered to your desktop. Now press the play button and you should be
hearing or seeing the podcast.
