I’m in NYC again. I Have everything setup in my apartment so I decided to see if this still works.

ENJOY!!

Okay, this is the deal. The podcast is not dead.

I know it has been almost a month since the last time I put anything out. The reason is that I’m in medical school now in the Caribbean (Dominica) and I have just been settling in. Plus, internet is slow here and I don’t have all my equipment. I recorded a show before I left home and will try and put it up soon. I’m sorry to all that have been waiting. I’m going to work something out so please stay tuned!

Thanks everyone.

Podcasting 101 – What the hell is a podcast?

It has come to my attention that Podcasting is not as widespread as I thought it was. The last three people I told about the show didn’t exactly know what a Podcast was. I’d like at least people I know to listen to the show, but they must be informed. If you don’t know what a podcast is please check out Podcasts on Wikipedia.com.

Pretty much a Podcast is a audio broadcast of any genere/type. What makes it a Podcast is that it is you can subscribe to it and when new episodes are released the program you use to manage your subscriptions will automatically download the episode on your computer and load it on your Digital Audio Player if you choose it to do so.

The program and digital audio player you choose is up to you. Most people, 80% of the market, own one of the Apple iPods. So, they use iTunes to subscribe to podcasts. You can search for shows in the iTunes Music Store or click a subscribe button, like the one on the sidebar to your left. After subscribing any new episodes will be loaded in iTunes and your iPod when the are released. There are many other programs like iPodder, DopplerRadio and ipodderX. There are also websites that can help you manage podcasts like http://Odeo.com and http://Podcasts.yahoo.com.

Of course it get more technical than that, but not much. Its pretty simple if you just know the basics. I hope this explanation has helped you understand what a podcast is and maybe will help you subscribe and enjoy some of the great content out there.

Show finally added to iTunes

The show was finally added to itunes after being rejected twice. Anyway the itunes subscribe badge on the sidebar works now. Yeah.

For those that do not know what a ‘podcast’ is.  Please search for it on google.com.  For those that don’t know how to access a podcast please just click a direct download link on the site or just click the itunes button on the sidebar and itunes will do the rest.  If you have any questions, feel free to email me at 20minutemixtape@gmail.com.

Thanks and I hope everyone enjoys the shows.
