Basic Podcasting FAQ's :
What is podcasting?

Podcasting makes an audio file, typically an MP3 file, available online for downloading via an automatic "feed." You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player.

What do I need to hear podcasts?
The first thing you need is podcast subscription software. Your options include the latest version of Apple's iTunes (which has the software built in), or other services to manage your podcast subscriptions. At this point, you will already be able to listen to podcast audio from your computer (provided your computer has a sound card and can play MP3 audio files). If you want to make your podcasts portable, you will need to transfer them from your computer to a portable media device.

How do I subscribe to a podcast?

To subscribe to any podcast(s) listed, with software (see above) click the feed link or itunes link and choose to subscribe.

For unsubscribing, just delete that show from whichever subscription software you're using.

I subscribed to a podcast. Why don't I hear anything?
First, be sure that you have audio player software; then, verify that the correct audio file was downloaded to your computer. You may need to modify the update settings in your podcasting software to ensure that this process occurs automatically. Next, check the update times in the description and make sure that a new edition should have been posted. If an audio file is not present and the feed time has passed, please contact NPR from our Help Center.

Why doesn't KUSP offer podcasts of music shows?

There are a number of legal issues which have yet to have been resolved regarding the distribution of mp3 format pre-recorded music.

Is podcasting expensive?
KUSP provides this service for no charge. There are costs involved which the station is absorbing. Please considering helping support KUSP if you enjoy the podcast service.
