Think of an RSS feed on say gardening news, you subscribe and get to read about gardening. Simply put, podcasting is the same but you get to hear (or see) about gardening i.e. audio or video files. Podcasting comes from 'iPod' and 'broadcasting' because it originally involved syncing the file onto an iPod so that it could be listened to at any time.

In the same way that blogs gave anyone in the world the opportunity to distribute what they write, now podcasting is doing the same for high bandwidth media. It's very early days but podcasting looks like being a driver for some inovative technologies.  For example coupled with Skype we get SkypeCasting http://www.henshall.com/blog/archives/001056.html
