A podcast or generically netcast, is an episodic series of digital audio or video files which a user can download in order to listen. Alternatively, the word “podcast” may refer to the individual component of such a series or to an individual media file.
Podcasting often uses a subscription model, whereby new episodes automatically download via web syndication to a user’s own local computer, mobile application, or portable media player (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcast).
“SIMPLY PUT, A PODCAST IS TALK RADIO, BUT ON DEMAND.”
It’s a series of spoken, audio episodes, often focused on a particular topic or theme, like cycling or startups. You can subscribe to the show with an app on your phone and listen to episodes whenever you like on your headphones, in the car or through speakers (www.thepodcasthost.com/listeners-guide/what-is-a-podcast/).
