What is a Podcast

A podcast, in simplest terms, is a media file that is broadcast over the Internet by the use of syndication feeds. Podcasters record something, whether it is music or talking, into an audio file, usually in the MP3 format. The podcaster posts a link to this media file on a blog. The blogging software, in turn, compiles a list of the entries with the linked media files into a list file called an RSS feed. Subscribers can use these feeds to download those media files and listen to at their leisure via a mobile device or web browser.
