iTunes is free, but you still have to build the cast, and host it yourself, iTunes is just a directory.
And yes it works on PC and Mac,
dun worry about the technical stuff...

we have ZERO content right now... let's work on having something to actually publish first.

Well, it says you have to host the server with a mac OSX comp =/, or sometin like that, I dunno.

Anyways, yeah, we should.

I would help, if I had time and my parents weren't the nosiest people on the planet ever -.-.

Just a suggestion:

Can't you upload a podcast onto iTunes?  I'm pretty sure that the upload price is either small or non-existent, and if the podcast could be uploaded, it would probably be a good way to promote FT, yeh?

That could also cause publicity that the site may not want =/. I know that it would bring more members, but it would also bring a lot of people we don't want coming around here.


EDIT: I looked it up, and I didn't quite understand, but I'm pretty sure it's free, but you have to have a Mac.

Good point, , but if iTunes uses a keyword system (for instance, you find the podcast on search results when you search the word "furry), the majority of the people who would find the podcast would be furries.

I really don't know of any folks from 4chan or elsewhere who look on iTunes for sites to raid.  XD

I don't think you need a Mac.
From what I understand, you need an iTunes account and the software to upload podcasts. I have no idea if iTunes accounts cost anything though (if they do, we might wanna look into making it donation-run, but from previous experience (back when we tried to fund a meet), that requires a low, low cost)

No it doesn't, everyone thinks that it also requires a credit card at least, but there's a special loop hole around that one =D.

You're looking at the specs for MacOSX Server Podcast Producer, that's completely different, and requires thousands of dollars in equipment... Just getting a podcast listed on iTunes is free.

Ahh alright, it just looks weird.

Also, the loophole is extremely easy, I'll write it up just in case you guys need it.

1. Open Itunes
2. Go to the Itunes Store
3. Go to the apps store
4. Choose any free app
5. Press "Get App" (you don't need an iphone/touch for this don't worry)
6. Press "Create New Account"
7. Press Continue
8. Accept the terms
9. Fill in the stuff, press continue
10. IMPORTANT PART!!!!: Where it says credit card, look at the last choice, if you did it right, you should see a circle that says "none", tick it.
NOTE: You can only get that tick if you get a free app, well that's the only thing I've found that works, there might be other stuff, but it should only be free stuff that works.
11. Fill out the information
12. Press continue
13. Do whatever you need to do from there, I've already signed up so I can't go on, but yeah, it works =3.

Once you download the app you can keep it or delete it, it doesn't matter.


^^ I got that from some site a WHILE ago, dunno what the site is though =/.

WILD SAFARI ADVENTURE: where furs go out to the public  to see their thoughts on the fandom or if they have any thoughts at all (could be dangerous)

That sounds like it would be a lot of fun.
