Most people think the "pod" in "podcast" is a contraction of iPod, Apple Computer Inc's registered trademark of their mobile digital device. It's not so sinister. POD stands, simply, for Program On Demand.

My podcast, an occasional discourse on stuff related to cricket, is available in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis audio formats. I recommend Ogg, but because most brands of portable audio player (including iPod) do not support it yet, MP3 will do the trick with almost the same quality. Issue One of The Net Sessions was released on August 5, with Issue Two out on August 19. Issue Three was released on September 7, with Issue Four on Tuesday, October 18.

The podcast feeds are available in RSS only: - MP3 podcast - Ogg podcast
