Podcast - A podcast is a series of either audio or video files released episodically and often downloaded through Really Simple Syndication (RSS).

 RSS - “Really Simple Syndication” is a standardized group of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated material such as blog entries, news, podcasts, audio, and video. Subscribers to RSS feeds can use desktop, mobile or web-based readers like Google Reader or My Yahoo RSS reader.

.MP3 - is an extension for MPEG-1. It is an audio compression format for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players.

.MP4 - is an extension for MPEG-4. It is used to store digital video and audio streams. MPEG-4 Part 14 can also be used to store other data such as still images and subtitles.

.M4A - is the same as .MP4 but is primarily used to store audio-only MPEG-4 files.
