From breaking the sound barrier to the first flight of the F-22A Raptor, Edwards is the home to many firsts. Keeping with tradition, Edwards is the first military installation in the Department of Defense to offer base-specific audio and video podcasts to the general public.

tabWhat is Podcasting? 
Podcasting is a method of publishing audio and video broadcasts via the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed of new files (usually MP3s). Many content providers offer podcast feeds at no cost. These feeds deliver broadcasts to your desktop. You can listen to these files on your computer or load them on to your portable digital player and take them with you.

The word "podcasting" combines the words "broadcasting" and "iPod." The term can be misleading since neither podcasting nor listening to podcasts requires an iPod or any portable music player.

Podcasting is distinct from other types of online media delivery because of its subscription model, which uses a feed (such as RSS or Atom) to deliver an enclosed file. Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "radio shows," and gives broadcast programs a new distribution method. Listeners can subscribe to feeds using "podcatching" software (a type of aggregator), which periodically checks for and downloads new content automatically. Any digital audio player or computer with audio-playing software can play podcasts.
tabHow to Subscribe 
First and foremost, you will need an application that can manage your podcast subscriptions. A list of the most widely available podcast software is on the right.

Once the podcast software is installed, all that remains is subscribing to the podcast.

If you have iTunes installed, click here to subscribe to the audio podcast or click here to subscribe to the video podcast. Otherwise, you can cut and paste the following URLs into your podcasting application: 

Audio:
http://www.edwards.af.mil/shared/xml/rssiTunes.asp?cid=313

Video:
http://www.edwards.af.mil/shared/xml/rssiTunes.asp?cid=104

Your software will automatically check your podcast subscriptions for updates and regularly download any new content.
tabRequired Software 
All you need to get started is podcasting software. Once you download and install the software, simply subscribe to the podcast feed. The podcasting software will automatically check for updates and download the files to your computer so you can load them onto your MP3 player.

Podcasting software is available without charge at the links below.
