A podcast is a program in digital format that's available for download over the internet to a personal device (phone, tablet or computer) to listen to whenever you'd like. Podcasts are a popular way for pilgrims to learn about Camino routes and listen to accounts from other pilgrims. A podcast's host engages guests in a discussion about the episode's topic, often in a casual interview format. In the notes section of a podcast, you'll often find links and show notes, the guest's biography, and additional resources.
