What's the point?
Podcasting gives you a chance to listen to selected DW-RADIO reports and features on the upcoming elections whenever you want, wherever you want. Choose the files you want to listen to and play them either on your computer or while you're traveling on your MP3 player.
What are the technical requirements?
To listen to a podcast, you need a computer with an Internet connection and a special software program. So-called podcatchers download the MP3 file for you and automatically transfer it to the MP3 player. Clients are available free of charge online.
