What is podcasting?
In common use, "podcasting" refers to delivering audio programs over the Internet. These programs are often similar in style and content to radio shows and are typically provided as MP3 files, but they can be any type of audio in any digital audio format. A "podcatcher" is software that allows you to subscribe to a series of related programs such as our Caldwell UMC Weekly Sermons automatically when they are made available online. Once downloaded to your computer, the programs can be easily transferred to an inexpensive portable MP3 player, allowing you to take them with you wherever you go.
