> Hello friend, A podcast is a collection of digital media files which is

> portable media players and
> personal computers.
> In general, these files contain

> images,
> text,
> PDF,
> or any file type.
>  The content provider begins by making a file (for example, an
> MP3
> audio file) available on the Internet through some known
> Uniform Resource Identifier.
> This is usually done by posting the file on a
> webserver

> public or may only be available to certain users. The content provider 
> then announces the existence of that file by referencing it in another
