    A "podcast" is a distribution of audio or video via the internet via a syndication system which facilitates the distribution and subscription of such. Podcasts are usually distributed via RSS "feeds". This media is then playable on computers and MP3 players (and other systems).

    The term comes from an amalgamation of iPod and broadcast. The easiest way you acquire them is via iTunes. Many browsers will redirect the RSS feed of a podcast to iTunes. One can download episodes individually, or subscribe to podcasts.

    Also, some podcasts are recorded live on the internet using "conference call" type software. TalkShoe is an example of this used by Podshock.
