Podcasting is the recording and publishing of audio and in some cases, video files, so that subscribers can automatically be fed new content, and listen to it at their leisure on portable devices such as iPods, MP3 players, or computers.
Think how a desktop news aggregator works. You subscribe to a set of RSS feeds, and then can easily view the new stuff from all of the feeds together, or each feed separately.
Podcasting works the same way, with one exception. Instead of reading the new content on a computer screen, you listen to the new content on an iPod , MP3 player, computer, or other similar device.
For perfect streaming or fast download of your podcast consider getting business hosting.

The first step podcasting is to create your audio content. The content for your Podcast can be anything you like, including audio books, interviews with friends or "experts" on various topics, radio like shows, or simply your musings about some interesting topic. Educators use podcasts as a way for students to give oral presentations, narrate stories or field trips, and to produce student radio broadcasts. There is no specific format. Your podcast can be anything that you want them to be.
Use a good quality microphone to get the best sound. As for the recording, it doesn't matter what platform or software application you use to record your audio. You simply need to produce an audio file that can be converted to an MP3 file format. One option is to use free audio editing software from Audacity. It's open source software that is available for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux operating systems.
It's free and it let's you mix together multiple tracks. You could have a voice on one track and music playing in the background on another track. A third track could include sound effects. Audacity is a free and powerful software application, but it's not the only one you could use to create your audio file. This Audacity Tutorial will help you to record and edit your audio file.
GarageBand on a Mac is another popular choice. So it Adobe Audition (formerly Cool Edit), Sony SoundForge, and ProTools. All will produce a high quality audio file that you can use for podcasting.
The next step is to convert your audio file to MP3 format. MP3 files are the standard for podcasts and the one that will enable your podcast to be heard by the most listeners.
You want to use the best quality audio you can but be aware that the better quality the sound, the larger the file and the longer it will take for your user to download. Audacity and many other audio programs have ways to convert your audio file into an MP3 format.
The next step is to create your RSS newsfeed. Podcast feeds are the RSS files that describe the content of your podcast so that others can subscribe to them. An RSS file is nothing more than a simple text file that provides information about your podcast. It's usually saved as an .xml file and placed in a directory on your Web server. You can use this RSS Tutorial to create your RSS feed.
The next step is to upload and validate your RSS feed. There are several free web applications that will help you do this. There you have it!.
