Difference between YouTube Channel and PodCasts?

I plan to post videos to my own channel and make sure to describe any image well enough that a person who's listening only can get the full concept of the video. Are there best practices for this kind of approach?

What is a PodCast?

What's the difference between a YouTube Channel and a PodCast?

Hi newbieweb,

We can say podcasts are digital media files (most often audio or video as well), which are produced in a series. You can subscribe to a series of files, or podcast, by using a piece of software called a podcatcher.Podcatchers such as iCatcher! and Downcast are popular because they're designed for use with smartphones and, not surprisingly, podcast listeners often tune in while driving, walking, or working out.

Once you subscribe, your podcatcher periodically checks to see if any new files have been published,
and if so, automatically downloads them onto your computer or portable music player for you to listen to or watch

If someone is driving in a car and is forced to put the video in the background, the audio feed would be sufficient to fully explain the message

How's the different than me creating a Channel on YouTube and posting my videos there?

So, when I post my videos on YouTube, in my Channel, these are Podcasts?

How does this relate to using Podcatchers such as iCatcher! ?
