What is a Podcast?
"A podcast is a recurring program delivered over the internet. They don't always have to be audio (we support video podcasts too), but most are audio-based conversations. Podcasts span all topics...and they can be created by anyone at all, from an individual barking passionate opinions at their phone to a global news organization working in a professional studio."
