Umm, What’s a Podcast?
A podcast is like a radio show that you can listen to whenever you want (on your phone or computer).
Podcasts can be about different topics, such as Business, Education, Art, Politics, or Hobbies.
And each podcast is made up of a series of episodes that are released over time (daily, weekly, or monthly).
The Writer on the Side podcast is published on a bi-weekly basis (once every 2 weeks), and you can listen to the episodes anytime after they’re launched.
People usually listen to podcasts while driving to work, exercising at the gym, or doing chores around the house.
They’re a great way to make use of downtime and learn something new.
