A podcast is a media file (audio, video, or both) that is distributed over the Internet, for playback on mobile devices or personal computers. The term "podcast" is derived by combining the word "broadcast" with Apple's portable music player, the iPod. Podcasts may be anything from a news broadcast to a garage band's recording.
The novelty of podcasts is that you can listen to them whenever or wherever you want - on the bus to school, through your car stereo, or even while waiting in the doctor's office.
