What is a podcatcher?

A podcatcher is an application you can use to subscribe to podcasts; the podcatcher automatically downloads podcasts as they are posted to a site. Podcatchers can also transfer downloaded podcast files to a portable media player (e.g., an iPod). A podcatcher is a special type of news aggregator; while news aggregators retrieve several types of syndicated web content (e.g., blog entries or the latest content posted to a commercial site, as well as podcasts), podcatchers are geared specifically toward podcasts.

Indiana University students, faculty, and staff can download podcatcher software (i.e., iTunes) free of charge from IUware.
