You’ve probably heard about broadcasting, such as a news anchor does on TV.
Podcasting is like broadcasting in that someone creates a show for an audience.
The difference is that broadcasting is done for a general audience to tune in (through television, radio, or Internet radio) while podcasting is much different, you can target a specific niche which makes the power of podcasting much more exciting.
And that’s the free information I’m going to tell you about.
Podcasting uses old technology that has been refined and put together in a new way to allow people with the right equipment (like an MP3 player, or an Internet connection and computer) to automatically receive recorded audio shows.
Rather than tuning in to the show at a certain time, like you may have to do with your favorite television show, a podcast lets you play that downloaded audio show at your convenience.
Out for a jog? Listen to it then on your MP3 Player!
