What is a podcast?
According to Wikipedia (January 25, 2019), "A podcast...is an episodic series of digital audio or video files which a user can download in order to listen to. It is often available for subscription, so that new episodes are automatically downloaded via web syndication to the user's own local computer, mobile application, or portable media player."
