What are Podcasts?
Podcasts are audio or video files which are distributed over the Internet for download onto personal devices such as iPods, MP3 players and personal computers. Once downloaded by the user (via tools such as iTunes or directly onto an MP3 player) they can be listened to / viewed as many times as desired and new episodes downloaded when available. Podcasting is rapidly taking off as a great way to get your ideas, views and information out to a wider audience around the world.
Why record a podcast?
You're human. No doubt you have something to say. No doubt there are people across the planet who want to hear what you have to say. Never before has it been so easy to do so. There are plenty of practical examples of why people find podcasting is a useful means of expression. You don't have to be technically obsessed to create and publish a podcast, anyone can do it.
