Podcasts

Podcasting was born from the iPod. The idea is that we can create video or audio segments, and people can download them for playback on their computer, iPod, or whatever device.

Here’s how we do it. We create an audio file, or video file, and we put it available for download on Monolithic.com. Then we also make it so that with iTunes, you can subscribe to the podcast.

Subscribing to a podcast means that when you turn on your iTunes, it will automatically look for the next update. If we publish a new video file, your computer will automatically download it. Then you can watch it whenever you want.

If you don’t have iTunes, and do not wish to subscribe, you can still come directly and download the files from our podcast section.

How to subscribe

  1. Make sure you have iTunes installed.
  2. Then click here to open iTunes to the Monolithic Podcast Section.
  3. Then click the subscribe button.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us.
