"Podcast" is an acronym, a combination of "iPod" and "broadcast".
A podcast is an episodic series of spoken word digital audio files that a user can download to a personal device for easy listening. Podcasting has been considered a converged medium, bringing together audio, the web, and portable media players, as well as a disruptive technology that sets this medium apart from the traditional 20th-Century model of "gate-kept" media and their production tools.
As of April 2021, there are over 2,000,000 active podcasts and more than 48 million podcast episodes (Podcast Insights, 2021).
This is the first year we recommend podcasts in Ski Paradise. We tried to find podcasts that increase our knowledge about skiing, set us in a good mood, and allow us to dream about our passion.
