Podcasters' websites also may offer direct download of their files, but the subscription feed of automatically delivered new content is what distinguishes a podcast from a simple download or real-time streaming. Usually, the podcast features one type of &quot;show&quot; with new episodes either sporadically or at planned intervals such as daily, weekly, etc. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Podcasting
