Members have been saying they can't listen to or get involved with ATS PodCasting because they don't have an IPod... THATs WRONG Windows Media Player is all you need among several other programs that will work like;

FREE Windows Media Player:

FREE RealAudio Player:

If you have a fairly new PC you'll have Windows media already on your computer. Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment >mediaplayer

Maby a name change is in order? ATS radio or somethin'? I guess it is podcasting though, so calling it another name might be ever more confusing.

[edit] PODcasts do rock! They are one of the best things to come to ATS in the past year, quality stuff and fun too.

I agree the name podcast is totally misleading. But it is not a name that ATS made up, it is called that in the world at large. It is a derivative of Webcast, which is basically web radio and someone decided that these mini casts should be called podcasts because they are mostly listened to on an iPod.

I don't own an iPod and I don't intend to. But like Springer says, just use Windows Media Player or winamp to play these files which are only MP3's anyway.

If anyone wants to make their own podcast. I can highly recommend that they do so, it is loads of fun. I know that finding the software can be daunting, so let me give you a tip: download Audacity from this link:

It is totally free and quite excellent too.

I thought people already knew you didn't need iPods. Thats, how I listen to all PODcasts, even the very first one, which was all through WMP.

All you have to do is go to the Apple home page or directly to the
Apple QuickTime/iTunes download page and you can download both
Quicktime and iTunes for Windows FREE.

I have the iTunes installed on my comp, but I have so many PODcasts from sites other than here, that it's quicker to get it straight from here into WMP.
