What is a podcast?

At this point you probably know what an mp3 is. If you want, you can listen to the Animation Podcast by simply downloading any of the shows through your browser. The wonderful thing about a podcast is that it is an mp3 but it is delivered to your computer automatically. All you need is a program like iPodder, iPodderX, iTunes, or any other program that will handle podcast feeds. You can read more at the Wikipedia.

Do I have to have an iPod to listen to a podcast?
Absolutely not. You can listen to a podcast with anything that will play an mp3 – either your computer or a portable media player.

To recap, here are the two ways to listen to The Animation Podcast (either way is free!):
A. Dowload the link through your browser and play the mp3 OR use the handy popup player in the sidebar to the right.


B. Get the podcast automatically when there is a new show by:

  1. Download and install a podcasting application like iPodder or iPodderX. If you have iTunes 4.9 go here for the show.
  2. Copy the Animation Podcast “feed” and add it to your podcasting application. Here’s the feed:


  3. Automatically receive new shows as they become available.
