A podcast is digital audio file made available on the internet for use through a computer or mobile device. Podcasts are typically available as a series, through new installments available through automatic delivery to subscribers.

The word was coined by Ben Hammersley following the emergence of the iPod. Recorded files distributed in audio format; though the term has been increasingly applied to video formats associated with the same style of content production.
