Podcast

noun; blending
a method of publishing audio programs via the Internet, allowing users to subscribe to a feed of new files Podcasts are usually free. Podcasts exploded in popularity largely because of the prevalence of personal mp3 players, which allow people to listen to downloaded content without needing to sit in front of their computer. The term “Podcast” is a blend of “iPod” and “broadcast”; it is somewhat of a misnomer, however, since podcasting doesn’t require an iPod or even other portable mp3 player.
