Getting Started - Podcast basics

 
Podcasting lets you automatically receive the latest episode of your chosen programme as soon as it's available. For example, when you "sync" your iPOD, your computer's software (eg. iTunes) will check WAN for the latest podcast and download. You need to "subscribe" to receive a podcast, rather like you might subscribe to a magazine and get it delivered each week. An important difference is that all of WAN's podcasts are free, and you can stop receiving the files at any time.
 

How do I subscribe to WAN podcasts?

 

To subscribe, the first thing you need to do is add the "feed" of the podcast to your software. The example below is for iTunes but others will be similar. The feed is where the software will go to each time it wants to check for a new episode.

The feed for WAN podcasts is given below:
