Definition[]

Podcasting (a contraction of "iPOD" and "broadCASTING")

both means the special way of distribution and the content. The latter mostly consists of spoken word/editorial content and music to an extent — thus classical radio content. This content is distributed via the Internet, downloaded to a PC and then sometimes transferred to an MP3 player on which it is listened to. Thus podcasting is also referred to as radio on demand.[1]
