A podcast is a series of digital media files that are released episodically and downloaded by users,[1] theoretically to be played on an iPod (hence the name), though in fact they can be played on many other devices.

Fans jumped on the podcasting bandwagon after it became popular in the mid 2000s. Fannish podcasts can contain news, commentary, interviews, readings of fanfiction, or some combination of these.

Some examples of fannish podcasts include Electronic Voice Phenomena (Supernatural), Snapecast (Harry Potter), Slashcast and /report (Multiple Fandoms). Radio Free Cybertron is a weekly Transformers podcast that predates the creation of the term "podcast" by several years.
