What is Podcasting?


Podcasting is online audio content that is delivered via an RSS feed. Some people see podcasting as on demeand radio, but actually podcasting gives a lot more options in terms of content and programming than radio does.


Podcasting can be used for:


1. Self-Guided Walking Tours - Informational content.


2. Music - Band promotional clips and interviews.


3. Talk Shows - Industry or organizational news, investor news, sportscasts, news coverage and commentaries.


4. Training - Instructional informational materials.


5. Story - Story telling for children or the visually-impaired.


"Podcasting is the syndication of audio files using RSS. Podcasting works the same as a standard RSS feed reader or news aggregator, the only difference is that the feed you subscribe to contains an audio file in it. Instead of reading content in your RSS feed reader or aggregator, you can listen to the contents of your feed using a reader or aggregator that supports podcasting, or you can listen to them on an iPod or similar device. While podcasting was named for the iPod, you do not have to have an iPod to listen to a podcast. Podcasts can be displayed on websites with clickable links to audio files and many of the standard RSS readers, like FeedDemon's latest beta, have begun supporting audio enclosures."


History of Podcasting


"In many ways the blog is the predecessor to podcasting in this history. Then the ability to transfer larger pieces of information and faster connection speeds led some bloggers to start audio blogs. Instead of writing their thoughts, they recorded themselves speaking and posted it to their blogs as an MP3 file. The spoken word added a new personal element to the media of blogging. Some audio blogs naturally evolved in to the first podcasts history."


Podcast is a morpheme of "ipod" and " broadcast"


Podcasting started becoming extremly popular in 2004. Podcasting uses syndication feeds to distribute digital media through the internet.
