PR012 – What Do You Call Your Podcast?


The term podcast has a specific meaning and if you have a show (audio or video) that you post to an RSS feed, congrats you have a podcast.

But what do you call it? If not a podcast then what? A show, internet broadcast, netcast, or something else. And more importantly, why?

Does the term “podcast” affect the medium’s growth either good or bad? Does it even matter what we call it?

Let me know in the comments what you think of the word “podcast.”

Guests for this Round included +David Jackson, +Daniel J. Lewis, +Richard Cleveland, +Steve Lee, myself (Ray Ortega), +Dustin Hartzler, and +Rob Greenlee.
