Subscribe to the Quiet Village Podcast.

Its free...really!

If you are unfamiliar with a podcast, don't worry. Think of a podcast as an on-demand radio program--no different than an MP3 of a song. On the internet, something called RSS feeds were being used to allow people to see up to the minute news articles. The feed would search the news source it was connected to (a specific web address), find the newest articles, and download them to the user's computer--to be read at their leisure. Someone had the bright idea that you could also use that same function to download audio files. At this same time Apple introduced the iPod and pushed the idea of users loading this "radio programs" onto their iPods and taking them with them everywhere--Hence, the term "Podcast" was born. Suddently you did not need to tune into a particular radio station at a specific day and time to listen to your favorite show. You could have your software download the show when it was released and have it waiting for you when you got up in the morning or came home from work.

So a podcast show is essentially an audio recording of a radio show (or similar type of show) that is downloaded automatically to you becuase you subscribed to the feed that the show is released on. Pretty cool!
