So, what is a podcast?

A podcast is a series of episodes that a user can download and listen to on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer.

Podcasts provide a unique way of consuming information or entertainment. You can listen to them on-the-go. Like when you’re driving to the pharmacy. While running after work. Or when you’re scarfing down your lunch before heading back behind-the-counter.
