What is a Podcast?

Podcasting or Netcasting is a method of publishing files via the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed and receive new files (or installments or episodes) automatically.

Listening to podcasts or netcasts does not require a portable player (iPod) and it is not traditional “broadcasting” to a mass audience at a fixed time. If you wish to "subscribe" to a show, you will need to download and install a Podcast client such as iTunes.

Many podcasts can be listened to directly from their websites with no additional software necessary.
