What is a podcast?

Podcasts are digital files that are released on the Internet for the purpose of playing back on a personal computer or portable media device. Unlike radio and television broadcasts, information released in a podcast can be accessed at any time and at any place. If a viewer subscribes to a podcast, regularly updated information will automatically be sent to the viewer. This capability is possible through Real Simple Syndication.

For a more detailed description of Real Simple Syndication, click on the About RSS link.
