Comes from the Latin 'Podi Castae'

which literally meant 'Cast (upon my) audio-device'

In recent years this has used by people in the form Podcast, especially because of a leading audio player called the iPod.

Podcasts are programmes (audio or video) that are hosted (usually) on the Internet, where they can be downloaded On-Demand as audiences desire
Since their release, The Ricky Gervais Show Podcasts have continually been top of the charts.

Largely due to The Genius of Karl Pilkington.

An online audio blog, made by people who typically sound like slightly camp nerds who most likely have no lives. It's pretty difficult to listen to one for more than about 5 minutes without laughing at them and then turning it off.
person 1: hey, did you listen to that podcast?
person 2: yeh, what a nerd. I felt bad for him making such a fool of himself while listening to it.

n. A "trendy" Buzz word for a Compressed audio File. Made popular by people that don't know any better, this Compressed audio file has been around since 1995. It has further reached the rest of the people of the world by stupid Media Coverage that likes to use a constant flow of buzz words to sound "trendy" or "young" so as to attract the young viewers.
