The world of Podcasts

Podcasting refers to the broadcast of audio files via the Internet along with convenient ways of subscribing to regular feeds which can be updated automatically. Despite the name you don’t need an iPod to listen to podcasts; any MP3 player will do and you can listen to them on your computer as well. Once you have downloaded the podcasts you can create in effect your personal radio station and listen to the programming that you want at a time and place of your choosing.

A good way of entering the world of podcasts is with Apple’s iTunes programme which is available for free on the Apple website. iTunes allows you to browse and search a large number of podcasts most of which can be subscribed for free.

The selection of podcasts is vast and like the Internet itself ranges from slick programmes by media giants like the BBC and CNN to amateur productions by individuals from all over the world. There are podcasts on politics, business, music, science and almost every conceivable topic under the sun. While the vast majority of podcasts are international, there are some Indian ones as well: on Bollywood, cricket, Indian music and so on.
