Listening to the Australian Hiker Podcast

What is a Podcast?

While many people are familiar with podcasts, to some the term is an unknown. So what is a podcast? The best way to think of a podcast is as digital radio on demand. You get to listen to a program of your choice at a time of your choosing and through your preferred technology e.g. the computer, a smart phone, or a tablet, etc.

Podcasts have the advantage over other types of electronic media in that you can be doing other activities  such as driving to work or exercising while you listen.
