what is podcasting
What is Podcasting?

The term “podcasting” is a combination of two words: iPod and broadcasting. It refers to the automatic downloading of MP3 audio files to a computer or MP3 player in a data structure called RSS 2.0 envelope (or “feed”).

RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication, and is an agreed specification of XML tags used to define objects which can be subscribed to through a “RSS news reader.”

The term “Podcast” is somewhat misleading because it implies that an iPod is required to podcast. Actually, podcasts can be used with a variety of digital audio formats and played on almost any MP3 player or portable digital audio device, as well as desktop or laptop computers.
