What is podcasting?
"Podcasting is internet radio. The files are obtained from the web, but can be listened to offline. With TIVO and other Digital Video Recorders available for TV, Podcasting is THE best solution for radio on demand. You can listen to programs on YOUR schedule. If you want to pause a show, you can do that. If you want to rewind or fast forward a show, you can do it. It's programming that fits YOUR needs! " [Ref:www.podcastblaster.com]
