Podcasting

A podcast is a simple yet sophisticated transfer of audio content over the Internet. It allows audio files to be shared among people around the world with a minimum of manual work.

Podcasts are usually MP3 audio files that are available for downloading onto your computer and transferred to an iPod or any portable digital-media device that can play MP3 files.

MP3 files can also be played right on your Windows, Linux, or Macintosh computer. MP3 is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for audio content.

The best thing about podcasts is that they're not only ready to play when you're ready to listen but they can also go anywhere you go via iPods or other portable MP3 devices.
