what do you guys use for listening to podcasts?
don't say iTunes...
sorry - can't help myself ... but ... "ITunes" ... and why not?
Actually, I like IPodderX for Apple OS X as well - it does as good as ITunes, and better because clicking the entry will link you to the actual RSS page online.
(my blog and occasional podcast is the same rss feed - http://www.fredmckinnon.com/myblog/index.php)

I never really gotten to what a podcast is... ill have to do research.
wouldn't you use iTunes?? That's what I use.
what is podcast i have seen it in itunes, but dont get what it is
A sort of.. radio station you can download and listen to. Anyone can make their own station. Correct?
it's just an audio recording. it's usually inside an RSS or ATOM feed as well.
it's basically an audio RSS or atom feed. with a link to an audio file inside.
I use iPodder. I assume if I had an iPod I would use iTunes as well (maybe
). There is also this other program called nimiq, but, it appears that they stopped developing it. It had some great potential though...
If you like electronic music, I have one you can check out in the Underground Art link in my sig.
Most people today - about 60% are using iTunes to subscribe to podcasts - according to the most popular podcasts I have talked with.
This is up from 40% at the beginning of August and 0 % before June 28th.
iPodder is number two down at about 30%.

I use iPodder (and sorry, but iTunes, as well).
I use iPodder, both on Windows and Linux.
While we're on the subject of Podcasts, what are some of your favorites? My favorite is Adam Curry's Daily Source Code, Free Talk Live, TWIT ( This Week in Tech), and several others.
My favorites include.
5 Minutes with Wichita
Geek Fu Action Grip
Nate & Di
Distorted View Daily
Keith and the Girl
and about 30 others.
Podcast: Archived audio files with a new, trendy name.
Actually they are a bit more than that.
What is making them take off is a few factors coming together.
1. By using an RSS feed your listeners can subsribe once and then have all new shows automativally delivered to their computer and / or sync'd with a portable MP3 player.
2. The explosion in Portable MP3 players (Although you can listen to podcasts on any computer)
3. The Media's fascination with anything to do with iPods and Adam Curry's 1 year Media crusade to promote Podcasting.
