Must be Monday. New podcast! Just click on the fancy logo below.
A "podcast" is this: a posting of files, usually audio or video, set up so that it can be subscribed to through a Web feed (RSS) by a aggregator program. That's it. That's all it is. It can be a radio show, or an audio/video blog
or pretty much anything. Basically, a Radio
show on the internet
It's a very basic tool given a fashionable, swanky, yet nearly nonsensical
name (which comes from playing them on iPods) to make it seem special and magical. Like pretty much everything else on the internet. On the other hand, it's a simple, catchy name for a common phenomenon, much like 'television' and 'radio', both of which earned howls and jeers when they were new (the names and the phenomena).
Notable is that the art of podcasting was arguably started by and inalienably connected to a man named David H. Lawrence XVII, as a newsletter for a radio company that attached RealAudio files to the emails that they sent out. He also went into acting a little later in life, and became best known as The Puppetmaster, Eric Doyle.
No seriously, same guy.
There is a term for a book done as a podcast: Podiobooks
. When a Fan Fic
is given this treatment, it's known as a Podfic

Pottercast and Mugglecast are on friendly terms and the two podcasts often do joint episodes at live events. Oh, and PotterCast scored an interview with JKRowling herself.
- Another popular Harry Potter Podcast is Potter Fic Weekly , which is like a book club of Harry Potter fanfiction. It's extremely unique in that the podcasts are often three or more hours long, although every second is filled with hilarity and this troper thinks it's worth it.

Live Action Television
- Battlestar Galactica had RDM's podcasts. Partly due to the fact that Moore was one of the earlier adopters of the technology the podcast are very informal and are usually simply his running commentary as he re-watches the episode.

- The History of Rome podcast took a lighthearted approach to charting the entire history of the Roman Empire, including humorous pop culture references to major inaccuracies in films about Rome. The episodes discussing how Maximus most certainly did not defeat Commodus and restore democracy to Rome, and the episode where the narrator mixes up the origin stories for Spartacus and Kirk Douglas are particularly good examples of this.

- Nerd Talk is a podcast that started as a college radio show and contains video game and movie reviews.

- The Sonic Show
- Talkradar, a "gaming" podcast on the review site Gamesradar.com. Gaming is in quotes because video games often only begins as the focal point of the 'cast, often descending into radio zoo show sound effects, drunken rambling, and general hilarious schnanigans.
- Random Assault is in a similar vein to Talk Radar, being in theory a gaming/nerd culture show before inevitably going so far off the rails you can't see the track.
- ''WorldOfWarcraft'' Radio used to be one of the biggest World of Warcraft related podcast (technically Shoutcast as it was live) before it broke up into 3 different networks. Said networks are still mostly World of Warcraft related with a big dose of general gaming and geek culture. All the subsequent stations since then gained more shows.

- There seems to be a change in leading Pokémon podcasts every generation. From 2005 to 2007, Bulbacast led the field during the Ruby and Sapphire-era as the first successful Pokémon podcast. After they went into hiatus, two guys from Brooklyn who call themselves "Jowy" and "KC" came in with WTPT - Pokémon Radio, and their podcast would end up being the leading Pokécast during Diamond and Pearl's run in the U.S. They've stopped producing new episodes after a downer year in 2010, which left the #1 Pokémon podcast spot open for the current leader It's Super Effective to take for Generation V.
- As for Pokémon podcasts that's never been successful enough to be the very best, like no podcast ever was, there's the Pokémon Underground Champions League. They've been around since the very end of 2007 and have outlasted WTPT, but their subpar quality have always prevented them from leading the Pokémon podcasting field. P.U.C.L. could have been number one after their (supposed) rival's demise, if it weren't for ISE taking the lead so quickly.
- The Game Station Podcast is a weekly (and very lengthy) general gaming podcast presented by The Game Station network on YouTube.

- Downloadable Content, the Penny Arcade Podcast. Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
- The Webcomic Beacon discusses the art of making webcomics from an amateur/hobbyist point of view and also regularly brings in guests from all points on the spectrum from hobbyist to professional. They also invariably descend into banter and often outrageous humour. Maybe it's the curse of webcomic people to just need to be funny?
- The Webcomics Company podcast sits somewhere in the middle of Webcomics Weekly and The Webcomic Beacon in that it's not entirely aimed at amateurs or professionals but instead wants to strike both with the same rod. It also descends into humour but tries to stay on topic while it does so. Views on whether it succeeds vary.
- Webcomics Weekly starts off aiming to discuss the art of making webcomics, then quickly descends into Scott Kurtz, Kris Strub, Brad Guigar and Dave Kellett having a good time making each other laugh. Can be very funny if you just want something to listen to, and infuriating if you actually want some advice.

The flagship show is Slice of SciFi, a weekly show with geeky news, interviews, discussion and a close-knit listener community that provides so much extra content that the hosts had to start doing an extra show.
