You may have listened to podcasts on our website and thought to yourself, 'I wonder how they do that'. Well now's your chance to find out and create a podcast yourself.

Podcasts offer a simple and effective method of getting your message out to thousands of people who visit your arts centre, website or dedicated podcasting site.

A podcast is a series of audio or video digital-media files which is distributed over the Internet by syndicated download, through web feeds, to portable media players and personal computers. 

Though the same content may also be made available by direct download or streaming, a podcast is distinguished from other digital-media formats by its ability to be syndicated, subscribed to, and downloaded automatically when new content is added.
