Podcasts explained...

It has come to my attention that many people are not familiar with what a podcast is. I hope this explaination will help.

Our podcast is a talk show about airstreams. You can download the file as an mp3, and play it back at your convience. You can play it on your computer, or if you have a portable player you can listen to it that way. The files are usually large because they are not streamed. They are downloaded complete so that you can put them on a portable player. The amount of time they take to download depends on your internet connection. If you have a high-speed connection such as cable or dsl, it should be downloaded in a minute or so. It will take much longer over dial-up.

What makes the show a podcast is the ability to subscribe to it. Much like a newspaper, it will be delivered to you each time a new episode is released. Subscription is free. You subscribe to podcasts using software. The most popular software for subscribing and playing podcasts is Apple's iTunes program, which is also free. See apple.com. Each time you run the software, for example iTunes, the program will check for new episodes in the background and get them for you.

If you don't wish to use subscription software, you can go to http://www.podnova.com and put in theVAP in the search box. Their site will let you play each episode from their webpage. Again, all free.

One final way to get it is to go to www.theVAP.com and use the direct download link. This will download the show directly to your hard drive to play back at your convience.

In short, a podcast is a mp3 that you can subscribe to. You can listen on your PC, MAC, iPod, or any other MP3 player you have.

Great!

I have listened to both episodes, and must say that it's a great way to share Airstream stuff in general.
I downloaded the latest this morning, dropped it on my I-Pod, and listened to it while attemting to save my plants from the heat wave by watering excessively. The information is good, and the sound quality is more than acceptable. I plan to participate as soon as my Overlander project is done.
It's a great way to share Airstream related issues over a wide range of demographics.
Thanks, Tim, for putting this on!
