Subscribing to Free Talk Live

What is a podcast?

A “podcast” is a buzzword to describe a very simple concept: an audio or video file available on the Internet for you to listen to and/or watch. A podcast can also refer to a series of these audio or video files (similar to how a TV or radio “show” can be a series of shows or just one show). When using the word “podcast”, most people refer to the entire series and not just one audio or video file.

Audio and video files have been made available on the Internet for years. Why is a podcast different?

Break PODCAST down into two parts. First the POD: you can either listen to a podcast on your computer or transfer it to your portable audio/video device, which means that file is Portable, and it’s On-Demand because you can listen to or watch it when you want, where you want. The CAST means the file is sent out to you over the Internet, in the way a “broadcast” comes to you over the radio or TV airwaves. But instead of using a radio or TV, with podcasts you use a computer connected to the Internet, and on that computer you have a program that allows you to subscribe to, manage, and listen to or watch your favorite podcasts. That’s where comes in: you don’t need an extra program to listen to or watch your favorite podcasts, or to subscribe to them and manage them, because you can do that right on our site.

What kind of content will you be hearing and/or seeing in a podcast?

Everything from homemade video/radio shows to big-budget productions, from targeted advertisements for products you’re interested in to cartoons, comedy, commercial or non-commercial — you name it. The great part about podcasts, as you’ll see as you browse our site, is that there is something for everyone.

You can also refer to Wikipedia’s entry on the definition and history of the word “podcast”.
