What Is Podcasting?

Podcasting" is making audio files most commonly in MP3 format available online in R.S.S.(Really Simple Syndication). This is a way that allows software to automatically download the files to a computer, ipod, or other portable listening device. This allows listening at the user's convenience.

A podcast is like an audio magazine subscription: a subscriber receives regular audio programs delivered via the internet, and they can listen to them at their leisure with an aggregator program or have them transferred to their portable devices.
The ipodder software from the creators of podcasting is a simple to use aggregator.
The latest version of
itunes also has a podcast option with over 25,000 podcast to choose from.

Podcast's differ from traditional internet audio in two important ways. In the past, listeners have had to either tune in to web radio on a schedule, or they have had to search for and download individual files from web pages. Podcast's are much easier to get. They can be listened to at any time because a copy is on the listener's computer or portable music player. (hence the "pod" in "podcasting") They are automatically delivered to subscribers, so no active downloading is required. Your aggregator will only download the subscribed podcast if there is a new show available.
