What is a Podcast?

You might think: I have heard podcasts, and I have heard of podcasting, but what is this all about? Well, that is what we are going to explore at How to Record Podcasts. A Podcast is simply a show you get on the internet. No other way to put it. However you record your show – audio, video, or smoke signals. A podcast allows you to express your views and opinions, or even report what is going on in the world. Podcasts can be one minute in length, or 2 hours. There have been podcast marathons, where people sit recording for...
