I have received multiple requests in the past week asking the same question. "How can I subscribe to just one day of GeekNights?" The answer is quite simple, you just use one of our handy dandy one-day feeds! Where are these feeds you ask? The truth is I am lazy, and I did not want to add them to the website until the new theme became ready. Due to popular demand my hand has been forced, and you can now see the new feed links on the right side of this web site. The feeds can also be found in the iTunes and Yahoo! podcast directories. For your convenience they are also handily located near the end of this post.
For those of you who might be newer to our podcast, or podcasting in general, allow me to explain this in greater detail. GeekNights is a radio show that airs four nights every week. It is distributed not by radio waves, but by mp3 files over the Internet. Anyone who has the ability to listen to mp3s can listen to GeekNights. You do not need an iPod.
The most basic way to get GeekNights is to visit this site with your browser and download episodes manually. However, most people use special podcatching software. Podcatching software is used to automatically download new podcast episodes as they become available. iTunes and Juice Receiver are both popular podcatchers. Podcatching software works by subscribing to feeds. A feed is basically a list of episodes that a podcatcher knows how to read. Because GeekNights airs four nights a week, with different topics each night, we have created a total of five feeds to which you can subscribe. The feeds are as follows:
- GeekNights Mondays - Science and Technology
- GeekNights Tuesdays - Gaming of all sorts
- GeekNights Wednesdays - Anime, Manga and Comics
- GeekNights Thursdays - Miscellaneous Geekery
- GeekNights Complete - Every episode in one feed!
We hope you enjoy listening to GeekNights, no matter which feeds you subscribe to. If there is anything else we can do to make your listening experience more pleasant don't hesitate to e-mail us at email@example.com.
