What is Podcasting? Podcasting, created by former MTV VJ Adam Curry, is a term that was devised as a crisp way to
describe the technology used to push audio content from websites down to consumers of that content, who typically
listen to it on their iPod (hence the "pod") or other audio player that supports mp3 at their convenience.
The term podcasting is meant to rhyme with broadcasting and is a derivative of the iPod platform. While not directly
associated with Apple's iPod device or iTunes music service, the company did contribute both the desire and the
technology for this capability. Podcasting is not unlike time-shifted video software and devices like TiVo, which let
you watch what you want when you want by recording and storing video, except that podcasting is used for audio and is
currently free of charge. Note, however, that this technology can be used to push any kind of file, including software
updates, pictures, and videos.
Podcasting uses an XML-based technology called RSS, or Really Simple Syndication. Content publishers describe new
content in an XML RSS file which includes dates, titles, descriptions, and links to MP3 files. This auto-generated file
is called an RSS feed (from podcastalley.com).
