What is Podcasting?
Podcasting is a type of online media delivery. You create audio files and then publish the selected files via the internet and allow your users to subscribe via an RSS feed to automatically receive new files. Podcasting lets you create your own syndicated online talkshow or radio program, with content of your choosing.
