Podcast

October 29, 2007

A podcast is a digital file – usually audio – that is pre-recorded and offered for download from the internet. Podcasts are commonly distributed around the web via RSS feeds. Users can then download podcasts to computers or MP3 players to listen to when they want.

Popular podcast content includes radio shows, interviews, and concerts. They can be one-offs or part of a series. Some are simply established shows recorded in a podcast format, while others are created specially and solely as podcasts.

The name podcast comes from broadcast and iPod – however podcasts can be played on non-Apple hardware.
