Podcasting across the universe...

November 23, 2005

It has occurred to me that despite the Podcast of my (almost) weekly playlist mixes being available for the past seven months, many of you may not have subscribed because the link to subscribe has been hidden down at the bottom of the right sidebar for all that time.
So, now that Podcasts seem to be literally TAKING OVER THE WORLD, with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Harry Potter getting in on the act I thought I'd flag up my feed to you all.

Firstly, a small introduction to Podcasts for any surviving luddites out there. What you must first realise is that podcasts aren't exclusively for iPods, The Swish Blog Podcast is an mp3 file that can be played on any compatible personal digital audio player, or media player on your computer (such as Windows Media Player or iTunes).
The point of a Podcast is that you get the media file automatically delivered to your computer each time a new one is available. To do this you must 'subscribe' to the Podcast. To do this you will need Podcast software, the three I would recommend are iTunes, Juice (formerly iPodder) and Odeo, once you have the software all you have to do is copy the Podcast URL into the software and click 'subscribe'.

I sooo subscribed y.on.ks. ago.

one point of notice, it's really great when you put the times of the tracks up, so I can fast forward to tunes I want to hear. Although that sort of detracts from the nature of the entire mix its helpful if I don't have the time to listen to it all.

Everybody says that I should include the times but obviously the only reason is so they can avoid listening to the McFly / Girls Aloud / LoveBites / Son Of Dork tracks...

I stopped doing it, but It looks like it'll be returning for the next mix (this afternoon) so you can 'skip the shit' as they say.

Cheers for pointing that out to the slightly less technologically minded of us (ie moi). Recently got wireless and itunes on me lap top so having a slight music overload at the moment but nice to know i will never miss another swish blog mix again. Hope that Larrikin Love come over here soon cause I have bigged them up so much to all the know it all music buff types I know (I'm such a hypocrite), they all keep going "Larry who?" and therefore I win (if it is possible to win conversations about new music you like that is...
