International Podcast Day
International Podcast Day celebrated every year on September 30, starting from 2014. A podcast is a digital media file distributed over the Internet for playback on mobile devices or computers. The content of podcasts resembles a standard radio broadcast, but their uniqueness lies in the fact that for listening it is possible to download a file to an electronic medium and play it at a convenient time. In addition, many podcasts have video previews available.
Steve Lee, the founder of one such site – Modern Life Network, initiated the idea of celebrating the appropriate day. The purpose of the holiday is to popularize media podcasts. People all over the world listen to their favorite podcasts to keep up with the latest news in technology, entertainment or information. On the day of the event, a multi-hour broadcast is organized, the participants of which are podcast developers from different countries of the world.
