LDS General Conference Podcast
Important: As of October 2011, this podcast now is just a redirect back to the LDS.org podcast on iTunes.
About this Podcast:
Have you ever wanted an easy way to get the LDS General Conference on your iPod? If so, I’ve setup a podcast just for you.
How do I get the podcast?
If you’re using iTunes, you have two options:
- Search the iTunes podcast directory for “lds general
- Or click the menu “Advanced”, then “Subscribe to podcast…”, and paste this in:
How does it work?
The LDS church makes its general conference sessions available as downloadable MP3s, which is great, because my podcast simply tells iTunes how to download the conference sessions as mp3 files directly from the LDS web site. Then, iTunes puts the mp3 files onto your iPod.
Why a Podcast?
I like to listen to General Conference podcasts for two reasons:
- iTunes automatically puts the newest conference sessions on my iPod every 6 months. I don’t have to do a thing
- If I pause conference on my iPod, and then listen to some other music, when I come back to the conference session, it picks right back up where I left off.
How far back does it go?
The podcast includes conference sessions as far back as April 2004. Prior to that, the Church didn’t make the audio archives of each session available in mp3 format. As the archives become available, I’ll update the podcast to go back even farther.
