65/100 What is a Podcast?

Podcast is a term that more of you are probably starting to hear on a regular basis, but most of you are probably wondering, just what is a podcast.

Podcast is an idea that has been around since about 2004 and is (by Wikipedia) defined as a series of digital media files (video or audio) that are releashed episodically and often downloaded through web syndication. Also sometimes called webcast, the basic idea is that people can record whether it be audio or video files and then put them on the internet for people to download. The term podcast comes from apple being such a big supporter of these webcast and being able to store them on your iPod or MP3 player.

Everybody seems to be providing content like this now days, such as radio, tv, and the common person, even myself. One of the great things about having a webcast of your own is that you are also not restricted by the FCC.

There are several great shows out there and you can kind of look at it as radio/tv shows on demand, and I listen/watch several of them daily and highly suggest you do to. I'm sure there is a show out there that includes stuff you like, and if there isn't, then maybe you should make one, because I'm sure other people share that interest.
