    Podcasts are much more than that. They are an audio or video program which can: tell a story (old time radio) follow a t.v or radio show and much more. Just look around in iTunes.

    Podcasts are sort of like the bastard child of youtube videos and tv shows. They feature episodes of similar times and themes (humour, drama, informative etc.) but are usually much shorter (not always) and are made by usually freelance presentors (not popular tv hosts)

    Good podcasts:
    Answer Me This!
    Diggnation.
    ROFL

    they can be a number of things. monthly/ weekly DJ Mixes/Radio Shows (Trance around the world with above & Beyond) or tutorials they can be mostly anything that contains audio/ video im sure.

    Podcasts can be either a video (picture and sound) or just a sound file, but they can be anything from tutorials, to basically mini TV episodes. They are almost like TV shows, but usually they are informative, instead of being a story. They are also much shorter (only a few minutes each). If you just browse around the Podcast section of iTunes, you can just find something that sounds interesting and download it. Most (if not all) podcasts on iTunes are completely free.

    They can even be short TV shows, or webcasts. They can be almost anything depending on what the person wants.
