Start your own Podcast

Are you listening?

If you’re not quite ready to start your own Podcast, you can still get in on the craze by subscribing to other people’s Podcasts. The first thing you’ll need is a Podcasting client, such as iPodderX, which regularly checks various preset sites to find new content for download. Once you’ve launched your client, you can use its built-in directory to add new Podcasts. If iPodderX doesn’t list the Podcast you’re looking for, you can add it by going to Podcasts: Add A Podcast Feed. Then copy the RSS feed address (it usually ends in .xml ) and paste it into the Podcast Feed URL field.

You can have iPodderX check specified feeds for new content to download. It will add the Podcasts to a new iTunes playlist. If you have your iPod configured for an automatic update, all you have to do is plug in your iPod; iPodderX will do the rest.

Here are some Podcasts to get you started:

> Daily Source Code
> The Dawn and Drew Show
> Reel Reviews
> MacCast

Tip

Place your mike at a 45 to 90 degree angle relative to your mouth. This will reduce the plosive sound that words beginning with the letter p can cause.
