2.3. Podcasts

In addition to bringing an eclectic selection of Internet radio streams to your computer's speakers, iTunes 4.9 and later can round up, play, and organize podcasts for you as well. The podcast name itself is a tad misleading—you don't need an iPod to play them and they aren't broadcast over the airwaves.

Podcasts are just radio-like shows, recorded as an audio file and posted online. Just about anybody with a computer, a microphone, and something to say can whip up and post a podcast on the Internet for everyone else to download and play. And because the podcasts are just regular audio files, you can play them anytime you want to hear them. You can even play them on your iPod.
