What is a podcast?

A podcast is an audio file you can subscribe to, automatically download, and listen to on a computer or portable digital music player. The term podcast is a combination of iPod and broadcast - but an iPod-style music player is not required.

Once you have subscribed to a podcast, each new episode of the podcast (typically an MP3 or AAC file) is automatically downloaded to your computer, where you can then listen to the file or transfer it to a portable music player such as an iPod.

It's all available for free. All you need is a computer with an internet connection - an iPod is strictly optional.
