By including a URL to an audio file, podcasts use RSS enclosures to turn a news feed into a XML feed of audio files.

Podcasting in Action

Some potential uses for RSS with audio enclosures:


* Daily radio shows;

* Audio-based web logs;

* Company news for sales reps/road warriors;

* TIVO-like time shifting of broadcasts;

* Audio book promotions, i.e., a free chapter to get you interested;

* Music aggregators

Podcasting is immature technology, but offers the potential of becoming a significant new platform for web content distribution.
