What is a Podcast?

A Podcast is like a radio talk show that you listen to on your computer or MP3 player instead of a radio.

Podcasting is the distribution of audio or video files, such as radio programs or videos, over the Internet using either RSS or Atom syndication for listening on mobile devices and personal computers. The term podcast, like “radio”, can mean both the content and the method of delivery. Podcasters’ websites also may offer direct download of their files, but the subscription feed of automatically delivered new content is what distinguishes a podcast from a simple download or real-time streaming.

Podcasting’s essence is about creating content (audio or video) for an audience that wants to listen when they want, where they want, and how they want.
