The award winning Ecogeeks: Untamed Science Podcast is here and it's free! Each week or so we'll podcast a new science video for you to download and enjoy watching at your leisure. While most of us here are biologists by training, not all of our videos are strictly in the life sciences. Subscribe to our ITUNES podcast and our YOUTUBE Channel.
There are lots of ways to subscribe to our video podcasts. Here are the top ways we recommend.

Only a few years ago it seemed that most people I talked to had relatively no knowledge of what podcasting was, let alone actually used it. Today thats a bit different, yet many still are new to the concept. Thus, I feel it's useful for those newbies to start by defining what podcasting is. Wikipedia describes podcasting as “the method of distributing multimedia files, such as audio programs or music videos over the Internet for playback on mobile devices and personal computers.”
This is done either through RSS or Atom syndication formats. For the podcasting we do, we use both RSS and ATOM feeds. They are small files that reference video or audio files on a server. The great thing about podcasts is that certain programs can read these RSS/ATOM feeds and will automatically download the files to a user's computer or portable device.
For instance, I subscribe to LifeonTerra, a weekly show about “Independent Wildlife Films”. Every week, the new episode is downloaded to my computer, which is then downloaded to my video IPOD and my IPhone. I don’t even have to think about it. It’s there for me to turn on and watch at my convenience. In that respect it is selective video on demand – even better than TV.
Podcasting became popular in late 2004, and video podcasting became popular in late 2005, when the Fifth Generation Video iPODs came out. Since then podcasting has become more mainstream. We here at UntamedScience have many sorts of videos that we produce. We save the best for our podcasts. Sign up to receive a podcast, we know you won't be disappointed.
