Since the very first podcast was created in 2003, podcasts have become an extremely popular way for people to consume compelling news, interesting stories and anecdotes from their favorite sources.
That includes our own Komando podcasts: Komando on Demand; Tech News This Week; and our new Scared Sh!tless security podcast. Listen to these online now for free.
In fact, a report from ArsTechnica gathered a few different studies on podcasting and found that 15% of the US population, or an estimated 48 million people, listen to weekly podcasts.
Not only are podcasts a great way to keep up with current events and areas of interest that you care about, but they are easy to use. You can listen to them in the car as you drive, in the kitchen as you get ready for dinner and so on.
But, before you can listen to the hundreds of thousands of podcasts out there, you'll need to make sure you have a way to play the podcasts.
