The term podcast derives its name from Apple's iPod, but to create, publish and listen to a podcast you don't need to own an iPod or any other portable music player for that matter.


In a nutshell, Podcasting is a new type of online media delivery. The host or author of a podcast is often called a podcaster.

  • You can publish selected audio/video files via the internet 

  • You can allow your users to subscribe via an RSS feed to automatically receive new files. 

  • Podcasting lets you create your own syndicated online radio program, with the content of your choosing.
