A podcast is a media file that is distributed by
subscription (paid or unpaid) over the Internet, for
playback on mobile devices and personal computers. The host or author of a podcast is often called a
podcaster. The term "podcast" is derived from Apple's
portable music player, the iPod.
Though podcasters' web sites may also offer direct
download or streaming of their content, a podcast is
distinguished from other digital audio formats by its
ability to be downloaded automatically, using software
capable of reading feed formats such as Apple iTunes.
