English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Blend of iPod +‎ broadcast, attributed to journalist Ben Hammersley who proposed podcasting in 2004.

Noun[edit]

podcast (plural podcasts)

  1. An audio programme produced on a regular basis, delivered over the Internet in a compressed digital format and designed for playback on computers or portable digital audio players, such as the iPod. [from 2004]
    • 2008, Andy Affleck, Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac, Take Control Books (→ISBN), page 10
      There's no restriction for what a podcast should and should not be. Of course, if you cover all these topics and more, you may find it harder to find an audience than if you focus on a narrower range and cover it well. Finding listeners is simpler if your podcast can be summarized in a sentence. More people will sample your show if it fits in a category in a podcast directory—like that found in the iTunes Store—than if it ends up lumped in a generic catch-all list.

Usage notes[edit]

The term podcast refers to the programme itself; each individual audio recording is referred to as an episode.
