What is a Podcast?

Podcasting makes an audio file, typically an MP3 file, available online for downloading via an automatic “feed.” You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player.

How do I listen to podcasts?

The first thing you need is podcast subscription software. Your options include the latest version of Apple Podcasts (which has the software built in), or other services such as Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or TuneIn, to manage your podcast subscriptions. At this point, you will already be able to listen to podcast audio from your mobile device (or computer, provided it has a sound card and can play MP3 audio files).

RSS Feeds

Use RSS Feeds to add programs to your third-party podcasting app or include feeds on your website or other RSS reader. Find all RSS feeds for KFUO Programs on the Current Programming page.
