What is Podcasting?

Podcasting is a term used to describe a collection of technologies for automatically distributing audio programs over the Internet using a publisher/subscriber model. Essentially, podcasting makes an audio file -- typically an MP3 file -- available online for downloading via an automatic "feed." You can then hear the file whenever you want from your computer or a portable media player.
