What is a Podcast?
A podcast is an audio recording posted online, much like a radio show, only sometimes shorter. Podcasts are a way of expanding on the articles here on the SwamiJ.com website. It is also a convenient way to share some guided practices. I'm just starting to learn about podcasts and will update this page as I learn more. The individual podcasts are here on the site (click here), as well as listed on internet in other locations.
General information about podcasting is
You can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes (you'll have to download iTunes software into your computer). There are some other places, but I'm not sure yet where they are. I'll add the links later.
Syndication through XML and RSS
If you understand XML and RSS syndications, you already have spotted the XML button. If you are reading this, but have no idea what this is talking about, I can't help you, as I barely understand this stuff myself. I don't know it well enough to describe it here in writing. But the gist of it that the podcast can be linked on your internet based home page portals, the same way you might track news reports from famous news networks. This is an alternative to subscribing through one the sites specifically designed for podcasts. There are other ways to do this, but one I'm familiar with is MyYahoo.
If you understand how to use an RSS Feed, then please note that the address for the Swami J podcast is http://swamij.com/podcast.xml.
