Podcasts are like radio shows but they can be listened to on your schedule - whenever you want! Many people like to listen to podcasts while out for a walk or on their daily commute to work in the car or bus. Podcasts are a great way to access information and learn new things. They are also fun to listen to just for entertainment. Once you download a podcast, you can either listen to it on your computer or take it with you by transferring it to a portable digital media player or using a podcast app on your phone.
