Podcasting is the wave of the future and a current craze on the internet. And really, they’re nothing more than mp3 files that people, known as podcasters, record and make available for download on their own terms. The biggest misconception is from the term pod. The fact is you only need a computer to download the files and from there you can listen through your speakers or headphones. An iPod is not necessary, as mentioned, your computer or other mp3 player will do just fine.
