One of Matthew's early posts, Podcasting 101, discusses his experience creating a podcast. For those of you who might not be ready to do your own podcasting or who might be unsure of what podcasts are, I'm going to step back and provide more information.
A podcast is like a radio or TV show, except the episodes are made available online. Using special software known as a podcatcher, you can download the episodes and listen to or watch them either on a mobile device, such as an iPod, or on your personal computer. Podcasts use syndication, so that you can subscribe and easily check to see if new episodes are available. (For those of you who want a more technical explaination, check out Adam Green's site.)
