Thanks

Answer
Hi, Cameron.
Sure I can explain it to you.
First of all. What PODCAST refers to?  Pod-Personal On Demand
The word is a neologism and portmanteau derived from "broadcast" and "pod" from the success of the iPod.
Basically, podcasts are audio, digital radio, PDF (file),  subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device.
You can listen or read them from you computer or mobile.
Here you can find a list of podcatchers: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_podcatchers

For example, take a look on BBC podcasts: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/genre/news

Many sites offer podcast content. Just take a look around.
Some podcasts: http://www.digitaltrends.com/music/best-podcasts/

Did it help you, Cameron?
Have a happy new year.
Regards.
