A Podcast is essentially an on-demand radio show that you can listen to on you phone or computer and subscribe to so you can be notified for future episodes.
Podcasts can be about a wide range of different topics, many of which might be very niche and not aired on the radio. Popular Podcast genres include entrepreneurship, relationships and mental health, and even true crime.
Similar to TV shows, Podcasts are made up of episodes, which can be grouped into seasons. They can range widely in structure and format, but Podcasts usually feature one or two hosts discussing the main topic of the episode. Podcasts often also include special guests which join the hosts in their discussion for the episode.
There is no set minimum or maximum length for Podcasts, some can be as short as 15 minutes, whilst others can stretch to several hours!
