Podcasting, is a method of publishing files to the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed or listen on a website and receive new files automatically by subscription, usually at no cost. It first became popular in 2005, used largely for audio and video files. You do not need an iPod to listen to podcasts. You can use any mp3 player or your computer to view. To get the feeds directly downloaded to your computer when a new episode is added we recommend Juice or iTunes (coming soon).
myWausaNews.com has developed a video podcast called “The Scoop” and an audio podcast called “Not on the Radio”. Both talk about Wausa and the area. A high speed Internet Connection is recommended to watch or listen to podcasts because the file size is very large. Dialup connections are very slow to load podcasts.
