Subscribe to Podcast Tutorial Transcript:

Welcome to the tutorial on how to subscribe to an RSS Feed.

Before you can subscribe to a Podcast, you must first have an RSS Reader.

For more information on how to select an RSS Reader, please watch the tutorial for Selecting an RSS Reader on our website,

After you have an RSS Reader, you can then begin to subscribe to Podcasts.

In this tutorial, I'm going to be using the Firefox RSS Reader and my personal favorite, Snarfer.

Before we begin, there are many different ways to subscribe to a Podcast. I'm going to be showing you two of them.

To subscribe to a Podcast in a browser based RSS Reader, you first have to find a feed.

For example, I'm going to browse to NPR's Science Friday website.

Most websites that have an available podcast will have a link to the podcast.

Click on the link and it should take you to the section of the website where you can subscribe to it.

Once you find the link to subscribe to the podcast, left click on it.

Usually, it will take you to the podcast directory and provide links to all of the website's available podcasts.

Also, be sure to look for the RSS icon in the address bar of your browser.

When you left click on that icon, you'll see all of the feeds we have available.

In this case, the site only has one feed available, so it immediately displays the feed and gives us the option to subscribe to the podcast or listen to previously published content.

If you click on the dropdown list, you can select Live bookmarks to have Firefox's feed reader subscribe to the feed or you can select an application of your choosing.

For this part of the tutorial, select Live Bookmarks.

Left click on Subscribe Now.

Firefox will then ask what you want to name the bookmark and ask you which bookmark location to save it in.

Select your preference, then left click on Subscribe.

When you do, you can now go to your bookmark toolbar or go to Bookmarks, Bookmarks Toolbar and you'll see the feed you've just subscribed to.

Any time new content is posted to this feed, you an find it here.

The other option is to subscribe to a feed using an installed application.

Like I mentioned earlier, I'll be using Snarfer as my installed application for the purposes of this tutorial.

So, go back to your web browser, and go to a site that has feeds.

Again, left click on the RSS icon, then select one of the available feeds.

This time, click on the dropdown list and select your installed RSS Reader.

In my case, I'm going to select Snarfer.

Then left click on Subscribe Now.

When you do, it should take you into your RSS Reading program and auto-fill the Feed Address for you.

Your Feed Reader should also give you the option to select your preference on how you would like the items from the feed displayed.

After subscribing to the feed, it should then appear in your available feeds list and show you a list of the items available in the feed.

Each time you open your feed reader, it will pull in all new items for the podcast.

This concludes the tutorial on how to subscribe to a Podcast. Please visit our website, , for more tutorials, including how to configure the program to create and post RSS Feeds.
