What is a Podcast?

A podcast is a subscription based content delivery system. The content may be audio (podcast), video (vodcast), pictures, or a combination of the three (enhanced podcast). Content is delivered to a 'podcatcher' as soon as it is posted. Content may be viewed on a portable device or on the computer.
