The New Oxford American Dictionary have chosen 'podcast' as the word of the year. So this year, we've decided to give you podcasting for christmas. In order to setup your podcast, you will need to create a playlist ... Once you have one created, go to the playlist.html url on your personal homepage (e.g.) — Then click on the podcast icon.

Would someone like to write a description of how to use this to everyone?

It really deserves a place on the FAQs.

Here is a description from wikipedia:

Podcasting is a term used to describe a group of technologies for distributing audio or video programs over the Internet using a publisher/subscriber model. It differs from earlier online delivery because it automates the transfer of digital media files to the user's computer for later use. Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "shows," and gives broadcast radio or television programs a new distribution method. Subscribing to podcasts allows users to collect individual programs from a variety of sources for listening or viewing at the user's convenience. In contrast, traditional broadcasting provides only one source at a time, and the time is broadcaster-specified. "Streaming" media files from the Internet removes the specified-time restriction, but is still limited to a single source. "Aggregating" programs from multiple sources is a major part of the attraction of podcast-listening.

Any digital audio player or computer with audio-playing software can play podcasts. From the earliest RSS-enclosure tests in 2000 and 2001, feeds have been used to deliver video files as well as audio, and other media such as photographs and text are transferable by podcast. The term "cast," however, still refers largely to audio distribution.

A podcatcher is usually an always-on program which starts when the computer is started and runs in the background. It manages a set of feed URIs added by the user and downloads each at a specified interval, such as every two hours. If the feed data has substantively changed from when it was previously checked (or if the feed was just added to the podcatcher's list), the program determines the location of the most recent episode and automatically downloads it to the user's computer. Some podcatchers, such as iTunes, also automatically make the newly downloaded episodes available to a user's portable media player. (This is only the typical behavior of a podcatcher; some podcatchers behave—or can be set to behave—differently.)
