A podcast is simply a digital audio file which is made available FREE (for the most part) over the Internet. A listener to a podcast involves the physical transfer of a file from a host (like iTunes) to a subscriber’s computer or portable media device – that’s YOU!

I must admit, I did not wake up one day and declared I wanted to record a podcast. If fact, our podcast began as a pre-recorded radio show and it was broadcasted at a later date.
