Podcasting l.jpg
Podcasting

Podcasting is the distribution of audio (or video) files similar to radio programs over the Internet for listening on a media player or personal computer. The term combines "iPod" and "broadcast.“ One may download a single file, but what distinguishes a podcast is the ability to subscribe and automatically receive content.
