What is a podcast?
A podcast is like a radio programme that you can download online. RA Podcasts are MP3 files. They are produced as a series of episodes and you can download episodes individually or subscribe to the series.
The RA produces two podcast series: The Royal Academy of Arts Podcast (current exhibitions and news) and The Royal Academy of Arts Events Podcast (highlights of the RA's programme of art and architecture events).
Does it cost anything?
No. RA Podcasts are free.
Do I need an iPod to listen to a podcast?
