What are Podcasts
Podcasts can be viewed as either the content or the method of delivery. A podcast is simply an audio file that is delivered to a user who has subscribed to a feed. The content of an individual podcast is often referred to as or reflects an episode just like a that of television or radio series.

The process of delivering the audio file(podcast) via an RSS(Real Simple Syndication) feed is called podcasting. Once the you have subscribed to a podcast(feed), a piece of software(aggregator) will check the feed to see when new audio files (episodes) are available and download them automatically to your machine(PC). Once downloaded, you can listen to the podcast at your convenience either, on your PC, IPod or MP3 player.
