Frequently Asked Questions
What is a podcast?
A podcast is a multimedia file made available over the Internet for download and playback on your computer, iPod, or any mp3 player. They are free, and once downloaded can be played anytime without an Internet connection. When you subscribe to a podcast, you can have episodes downloaded for you automatically by iTunes, Juice (formerly iPodder), or other "podcatching" software.
The website says I haven't registered, but I know I have!
Walk in the Word actually has two websites. One is the general WEBSITE, where you can listen to the broadcast, read the Weekly Walk, etc. The second is the STORE, where you can purchase books, message series, etc.
This means that if you register for an account with the WEBSITE, you won't necessarily be registered for the STORE.
The login for the WEBSITE is http://www.walkintheword.com/login.aspx - use this login to daily download broadcast mp3s, make donations, etc.
The login for the STORE is http://store.walkintheword.com/SignIn.aspx - use this login to purchase products.
We hope to merge these two processes into one in the future. In the meantime, please be sure to make note of your two, separate login credentials.
What is iTunes?
iTunes is a program that manages, organizes and plays audio and video files. iTunes will "sync" your iPod, so that you can take your files with you to be played anytime, or it can play the files right on your computer without an iPod at all. iTunes is free to download from Apple by clicking here.
Do I have to use iTunes to subscribe?
No, you can use any "podcatching" program. Another popular program called Juice (formerly iPodder) can be used in the same way with an iPod, Zune, or other portable digital media player. Juice is free to download by clicking here.
How do I download a podcast?
If you use iTunes: Simply click on the iTunes button to subscribe to the podcast you want. After that, iTunes will automatically update with new episodes. You can play the episodes right on your computer, or connect to your iPod and iTunes will automatically download the episodes so you can take them with you to play anytime.
If you use Juice (formerly iPodder): Copy the URL for the podcast you want. In Juice, click on Tools > Add a Feed, and paste the URL in.
If you use the RSS feed: You can also play the podcast right on your computer by clicking on the RSS feed link and selecting an episode. Your computer's default mp3/mp4 program will automatically open.

I can't sign in.
There are 3 possible reasons.
1. Please be aware that the password required to sign into the website is case sensitive. This means that the password `password', is different from, `PaSSworD'.
2. The online store is a separate database of users and passwords from the walk in the word website. You will need to have two accounts to use the website and use the store.
We are working on fixing this problem, but for right now, that is the way it is.
3. Your account isn't completed. Please reference this help topic for more information. I never received my validation email after registering
