What is a Podcast?

A podcast makes an audio file, typically an MP3 file, available online for downloading via an automatic "feed." You can then hear the podcast whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player. To download a podcast, visit our iTunes University page.

Podcasts may also be listened to directly from your computer with no download required. Simply press the podcast's play button when listening from the MD Anderson Cancer Newsline site.
