Apple Computer, developer of the MP3 player called the "iPod," has called Podcasting, "the Next Generation of Radio." People and organizations have begun to make content available via technologies that allow them to notify folks that have the right software installed on their computers (and are using a fast broadband connection to the Internet) that "podcasts" are available for downloading and listening to at their leisure. Users subscribe to "podcasts" using "podcatching" software (also called "aggregator" software) which periodically checks for and downloads new content. It can then sync the content to the user's portable music player.
Unlike radio or streaming media, podcasts are time-shifted, meaning that listeners have control over when they hear the recording similar to a VCR playing back a pre-recorded TV show. Using a portable player, such as the iPod, MP3 player, or a cell phone, podcasts are instantly available and can be listened to progressively while tending to other matters, thereby educating a busy listener at no time expense.
From the producer's perspective, podcasts cannot have live participation or immediately reach large audiences as quickly as radio can. However, podcasting allows individuals to easily transmit content worldwide without the need for expensive equipment or licenses.
