What software do you need? Technically, you do not need software to listen to a podcasts. Questionmark, for example, allows you to you listen to podcasts by streaming them right from our website.

Each software application is different. The basic instruction is to COPY/PASTE the podcast link into your podcast software - though check the instructions specific to your software.


Podcast Basics

A podcast is a series of digital-media files which are distributed over the Internet using syndication feeds for playback on portable media players and computers. The term podcast, like broadcast, can refer either to the series of content itself or to the method by which it is syndicated; the latter is also called podcasting. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster.

What software is needed to listen to podcasts? Technically, none.

Questionmark, for example, allows you to you listen to podcasts by streaming them right from the website. But assuming you want to download the podcast mp3 to a personal mp3 device or to your
desktop, you will need software.

There are many out there.

Gross National Product (GNP)

Total output of the U.S. economy; see the definition of Gross Domestic Product for details.

 

GNP and GDP tend to be used as synonyms, although GDP is definitely the preferred measure among economists and is gaining popularity in general conversation as well; the two measures are fairly close numerically. The difference is that GDP measures all production within the U.S., by whoever happens to be working here; GNP measures the production of all Americans, wherever they happen to be working. (Maybe you can remember the "N" in GNP stands for "anywhere").

 

Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

Total annual output of the U.S. economy, measured by its final purchase price.

GDP is divided into four categories, according to the final purchaser:

 

GDP =
Consumer Spending + Business & Residential Investment + Government Spending - Trade Deficit.

 

(See the interactive GDP Diagram.)
