What is a podcast?
A podcast is a form of digital media distribution. Podcasts commonly include audio and/or video episodes, updated on a routine basis. To listen to or watch a podcast, you'll need an internet-connected device.
How do I get a podcast?
You'll need a podcast app. In most cases, you may also listen to podcasts using your web browser, though you won't automatically get new episodes or be able to track where you left off, as you will with a podcast app. There are several podcast apps, which allow you to search by topic or by a publisher to find podcasts of interest.
