Instructions for Podcasts & RSS

In order to subscribe to any of the SISLTcast programs' podcasts, you need to have a podcast reader installed on your computer. A podcast reader is a special kind of RSS reader (RSS Wiki) that makes it possible to download and even create playlists of your favorite podcasts. If you do not already have a podcast reader and have a Windows or Macintosh computer, we highly recommend iTunes. For more information about getting started with iTunes, follow this link: Installing iTunes and Getting Started with iTunes. To learn more about using iTunes as an RSS reader, follow this link: Subscribe and Listen to Podcasts with iTunes.

Alternately, if you have a Linux computer or do not wish to use iTunes, you can use Juice. For user documentation, follow this link: Juice Documentation

If you have a reader that supports podcasting, you can right-click on the RSS feed image below and select "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location" to copy the location URL and then paste it into the appropriate place in your RSS reader. Follow the instructions for your particular reader.
