What is a podcast?
Podcasting is a way for content providers to publish their audio content on the Internet. Podcasts can be played on almost any computer or mobile device.
Similar to a magazine subscription, users "subscribe" to a podcast and each time new content is made available it is delivered directly to their device. This provides many benefits compared to requiring the user to go to a website and download the content themselves. Most podcasts, including Hyde Park's, are available free of charge.
Podcasting is based on a technology called RSS (Real Simple Syndication). Many news sites and blogs, for instance, take advantage of RSS news "feeds" because it allows them to deliver their content directly to a user's desktop.
How do I subscribe to a podcast?
First of all, you will need software* capable of receiving podcasts. iTunes & Apple's own Podcast app (built into iOS) are excellent choices if you already own an iPhone or iPad. The Stitcher app is a close second choice for all platforms. Other popular options are Feedly (online), Overcast (iOS), or Pocket Casts (iOS/Android).
Once you have chosen your means of using podcasts, then you can subscribe to ours by simply putting our podcast URL in your podcast software.
- Copy the URL of our Podcast: http://www.hpbc.org/mediaservices/channel1736.xml
- Paste the link into your podcast software.
That's it! You will automatically receive all programs currently in our media library, as well as any future programs we add.
* There are many more options available to receive podcasts than the ones listed here; these are just a handful of the more popular solutions. Hyde Park is not affiliated with any of these applications/services and neither endorses nor provides technical support for them.
