Have you heard about podcast? I guess all techy members of Pukhtoogle are already aware about this term and most of them who are using iPhone might have seen podcast app as well. Let me share a paragraph on what is podcast, Kisa dase da che?
A podcast is an episodic series of digital audio files which a user can subscribe to so that new episodes are automatically downloaded via web syndication to the user’s own local computer, mobile application, or portable media player. The word arose as a portmanteau of “iPod” (a brand of media player) and “broadcast”.
A podcast is the easiest way to learn about new things on the go. Instead of reading blog posts, newspaper or any other article while you are working; you can simply start a podcast and listen to it. In most cases if you are going for exercise, a walk or traveling; podcast can help you to learn more in less time.
