What is a Podcast?
While many people are familiar with podcasts, to some the term is still 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.
