A podcast is an episodic programme delivered via the Internet using an XML protocol called RSS. Podcast episodes can be audio files, video files, documents, or any combination of the three. You can subscribe to the podcast using a client application, such as iTunes, which regularly reads the XML file and downloads new episodes.
