Audio Podcasting that Works
Audio Podcasting is a service that allows your followers to pull audio files from your website to listen to on their computers or personal digital audio players.
The term comes from a combination of the words iPod (a personal digital audio player made by Apple) and broadcasting.
How is Audio Podcast Better
Unlike Internet radio, users don’t have to ‘tune in’ to a particular broadcast. Instead, they download the podcast on demand or subscribe via an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed, which automatically downloads the podcast to their computers.
Podcasting uses a subscription model, whereby new episodes automatically download to the user’s computer, mobile app, or a portable media player like and iPod.
Podcast File Types
The files distributed are in audio format, but may sometimes include other file formats such as PDF or EPUB. Videos shared following a podcast model are sometimes called video podcasts, vodcasts or vlogs.
