RSS & Podcasting

What is podcasting and what does it have to do with RSS?
Podcasting is a method of publishing audio using the Internet.  The Podcast, usually an MP3 file, is recorded, up-loaded to the Internet, downloaded onto another computer, and tranferred to an IPOD or another MP3 player.  You can subscribe to podcasts, connect the IPOD to the computer, use iTunes or IPodder software, and fill up your IPOD with podcast audio.  It enables individuals to become audio publishers and individuals to build a custom virtual radio station.
Podcasts are RSS 2.0 enclosures.  The actual XML code would look something like this:
<enclosure url="http://www.wizard-creek.com/mp3s/apodcast.mp3" length="12345678" type="audio/mpeg" />
An RSS feed with an audio enclosure is a podcast.
