Podcasting 108: Subscribing to Your Podcast

This is a one-credit course in the Podcasting curriculum for Social Media University, Global. It shows you how to subscribe to the podcast feed you’ve created (or to our guinea pig Toby Palmer’s) using a manual cut-and-paste method.

Here’s the slidecast for the course. When you’re done viewing it, see the homework at the bottom.


1. Try clicking this link and see what happens. Then describe what happened in the comments below.

2. Open iTunes, and copy and paste this URL into the “Advanced/Subscribe to Podcast” window as described in the slidecast above.

  1. I had never used the advanced URL option in iTunes. That’s handy information. It was a quick way to get a Podcast into iTunes without going the extra step of looking it up in the iTunes store.

  2. Lee – the slideshow isn’t synced with the audio in this one (podcasting 108)- it never moves unless you click it manually (all the others work though – I’m reviewing the curriculum because we’re talking about doing simple podcasts soon…)
