A podcast is kind of like an audio or video magazine, which you can listen to or watch on your computer or on a portable music player or smart phone.
Why Subscribe to a Podcast?
Just as you would subscribe to a magazine in order to get the latest issue delivered to your door automatically, you can subscribe to a podcast to automatically receive the latest episode.
Of course, you can always come up here to the Creative Insurgents website to get the latest episode, but when you subscribe, we do the remembering for you (or, rather, our “robots” do), so you don’t have to! As soon as each new episode is published, *bling!* it lands in your feed.
Plus, as a subscriber, you don’t have to be tied to your computer to watch or listen to our podcast! All you need to listen to a podcast is a computer with an Internet connection, and you can still use your computer if you wish, but you can also have the latest episode delivered to your smart phone (ie, iPhone or the like) or portable music player (ie, iPod or the like) by using an application like iTunes or Stitcher. That way you can listen on your phone or iPod while you’re cooking dinner, or driving, or making art!
To subscribe with iTunes, you’ll need to install the iTunes software on your computer. This page has all the info you need for how to find podcasts, play podcasts, and manage your subscriptions using iTunes.
