What is podcasting and what how does it work?


Podcasting is a term coined in 2004 from combining the words "iPod" and "broadcasting" together. A Podcast generally refers to a file, typically in an MP3 format, for playback on a personal computer or a portable device. This file is broadcast over the Internet and can be downloaded at any convenient time. Unlike Internet radio, podcasting is convenient because it allows the listener to playback the audio at any given time. The most common way to receive a podcast is through a subscription service.
