The internet has led to an explosion of new media forms that you're going to have to become familiar with if you want to shift into the mainstream. One of these new media forms is the podcast. Whether they're made to showcase a person's experience at a Mississauga spa or to give a little more insight into how a movie was made, podcasts are always interesting. If you'd like to learn a little more about podcasts, this overview should give you a basic idea of what they are and how they work.
Like the name "podcast" suggests, podcasts are our generation's version of radio broadcasts. The "pod" part of the podcast comes from iPod, which is the most popular version of mp3 player that people like to take with them to gyms in Scarborough. The reason podcasts were named for the iPod is that these broadcasts were meant to be downloaded and listened to on your iPod or other mp3 playing device. Podcasts are generally done in series, with new episodes being released on the same topic, on a daily or weekly basis.
Podcasts are very easy to make. All you need is some sort of recording software on your computer, a voice, and a website where you can post your recordings. There are podcasts on the internet about everything, from new innovations in astronomy to films and music to face hair removal reviews. Because podcasts are so easy to do, people who want to get jobs in radio or television sometimes use them to get their content out there where people (such as network programming executives) might see it. Popular topics for podcasting include entertainment (movies, music, celebrities, etc.) and education (lectures, readings, university coursework, etc.)
In order to listen to a podcast, you don't actually need an iPod or even an mp3 player. All you need is your home computer. To find a podcast on a topic you like, you can check podcasting databases like podcast.com or you can search for a relevant term, such as "Toronto physiotherapy" and the word "podcast" in a search engine. Once you've found one you like, you can use feed software like RSS or Atom to "subscribe" to the podcaster's feed, which means you'll automatically have new episodes sent to you. Once you download them onto your computer, you can transfer them to an mp3 device and listen to them anywhere.
The great thing about podcasts is that because they're not broadcasted live like radio is, if you want to listen to a vet talk about aquarium water pumps you don't have to rearrange your schedule so that you're near a radio when the show comes on. You can download it at your leisure.
