Only 5 years ago if someone had mentioned the word podcast to you, you would most probably have looked inquisitively at them or smiled nervously at them. That would then have been followed by the question “what is a podcast”. Nowadays however podcats are readily available on many sites including major news channels, sporting channels right down to personal blog sites.
So why the upsurge in podcating, or podcast listeners? Natural technical progression I believe is the way this has come about. I remember my friend years ago telling me that one time he was speaking with his dad about cassette tapes and LP’s (kids ask your parents). His dad then said to him “do you know what, in years to come there will be no cassettes, no LP’s (no CD’s) everything will be help on solid state players, like a cassette but with no moving parts”. How right he was. I bet he only wishes he’s looked into the development more at the time.
So what is a podcast? Without wanting to get too technical a podcast is: A podcast is a way to broadcast multimedia files – audio or video – over the Internet for playback on mobile devices (ex. MP3 players) and personal computers. The host of a podcast is the “podcaster.” Podcasting allows the podcaster to create a broadcast about a subject of interest to him/her and their subscribers. Subscribers are then able to listen to the podcast, how, when and where they want. You are in essence your own DJ. All you have to do is find listeners.
