What is a Podcast?

A podcast is a series of digital media files (either audio or video) that are released episodically and downloaded through web syndication. Most podcasts are audio in MP3 format, syndicated through the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) protocol.  In other words, a podcast feed is a syndicated RSS newsfeed, only with audio files included for download instead of Web pages.  Need Directions for Subscribing to our Podcasts? Click Here.
