The maker of a podcast, called a "podcaster," will periodically provide additional episodes of a given program. You can subscribe to a podcast using software designed for the purpose. This software will automatically check to see if any new episodes of the programs are available and will automatically download the episodes. You can listen to such a downloaded recording using MP3 player software on your computer or transfer it an MP3 playing device, such as an iPod, to listen to it on the go.
You will need "podcatcher" software, which can be programmed to poll a server periodically for new items, and download them to your computer or mobile device. Software in this category includes Juice (formerly iPodder - Mac OS X, Windows XP or Linux), Doppler (Mac or Windows), iTunes (Mac or Windows), and GoogleListen (Android).
