What is a podcast?
Podcasts are audio programs, similar to radio programs, available for download over the Internet. You can subscribe to a podcast and have new episodes automatically downloaded to your computer. Podcasts can also then be uploaded to an MP3 player.
Do I need to own an iPod to listen to a podcast?
No, you can listen to a podcast on your computer with a variety of free software.
