What is RSS?
RSS is a useful tool that allows you to keep up-to-date on new developments on web sites. RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” and allows you to subscribe to content feeds that are delivered directly to your RSS aggregator or to your web browser. As a result you don’t have to visit each section of our site to see what’s new. Instead, you will be notified as new content becomes available.

What is a Podcast?
A podcast is an audio broadcast streamed across the internet that users can download onto their computers and portable audio devices. Subscribing to a specific podcast "feed" enables a user to automatically update their computer with the latest edition of a particular audio broadcast.
