Podcasts are simply audio files (mp3) with voiced narration. Many are entertaining, exploratory, and informative. The aesthetic and production values of radio have some influence. But often, depending on audience, a more casual ethos is achieved in successful “do-it-yourself” productions.
Podcasts are written for the listener. Audio quality still important, as is some degree of editing, and content/structure planning. A podcast can be dowloaded from a website, syndicated through a blog, or sold through Itunes etc. Your podcast should be 5 (no more than 10) minutes in length and should be recorded in a quiet environment.
