What is a Podcast?

Arabic Podcast

Whoever reads the title, will discover the topic that we will address in this blog. But before diving into talking about the definition of a podcast, it is necessary to point out the importance of audio sounds in our lives.

Let’s do a simple test. Close your eyes and listen to the sounds around you. 

Can you distinguish them? Can you identify the source of each sound?

Now, look around you. 

Did you answer the previous two questions correctly? Have you managed to distinguish sounds properly?

Let’s do it again with a simple modification. Close your eyes and try to listen to the voices of different people in your head. 

Did you manage to distinguish people based on their voices? What did you feel when you heard the voice of a specific person without seeing them?

It is proved. Audio sounds greatly affect our impressions and help us connect with the outside world. Either you feel comfortable and attracted when hearing a voice, or you feel annoyed and alienated, just like when a fetus hears sounds and distinguishes them in the mother’s womb. 

Podcasts, just like humans, are greatly affected by sound, as they are based on it. How? Let’s begin by explaining the definition of a Podcast. 

The word ‘podcast’, combines ‘Broadcast‘, i.e. broadcasting or publishing, and ‘iPod‘, which is Apple’s first music operator. 

Podcast shows are audio posts or audio files available online. They are similar to radio programs but can be listened to on-demand, and this is what distinguishes them from traditional media audio programs.

The listener can control tuning into podcast shows according to their desires and interests, as they can listen to podcasts at any time without even connecting to the Internet.

In short, a podcast is a series of recorded audio content, of which each addresses a certain idea or subtopic, under a general category such as comedy, history, society & culture, music, etc.

Podcasts are a modern entertainment media form trending among people, as it meets their desires and simulates their aspirations without compromising convenience. All that is required is a podcast mobile app, such as Podeo, installed on a smartphone. 

Finally, podcasts are a distinctive way to easily access information at any time and anywhere. In addition, it is a great tool to express yourselves and your ideas. So what are you waiting for to take the first step toward the world of podcasts
