Podcasting is still a young media format. It's not uncommon for people to have questions about it.

"What is a podcast"

Why should I listen to it?"

"How do I listen to it?"

I will explain everything you need to know about how to take advantage of this exciting and free resource

 


What is a podcast?

The simple answer: It's  on-demand radio. You can listen to specialized content that is realavant to your interests anytime you want. Most podcasts are audio only, but you can find many video podcasts as well.

The technical answer: Podcasts are media files that are uploaded to a media server and distributed through an RSS feed. People can subcribe to your RSS feed just as they would with a blog. The media files have meta data that allow them to be discovered when users search for keywords within the meta data.


 

Why should I listen to it?

Expert advice, education, motivation, personal development, you name it, it's all there in podcasts and it's free. Unlike video or written content, audio podcasts allow you to listen while you go about your daily life. There's zero time commitment. Enrich and entertain yourself while at work, working out or cooking dinner.
