Introduction of Podcasting

Podcast is all about audio. With whatever you are listening instead of watching its video side by side is known as podcasting. So, basically it is a free service that allows Internet users to pull audio files to listen. Whether you listen songs or listen some motivational stories or any topic on which a person is speaking and you are listening or a group of people talking and you are listening instead of watching them by eyes, then that is known as PODCASTING.

You listen to the songs or news on a radio while sitting back at home or in car, but the problem is that not every-time you listen to your favorite songs or the news. There comes in picture, podcasting. This will soon replace radios in future as people likes to hear their own favorite things to listen whether it is a motivational story, a song, news or anything.
