The term 'podcast' has been declared Word of the Year by the New Oxford American Dictionary.
The term is defined as "a digital recording of a radio broadcast or similar program, made available on the internet for downloading to a personal audio player". It will be added to the online version of the dictionary during the next update early next year. The BBC Says "This year it's a completely different story. The word has finally caught up with the rest of the iPod phenomenon." Greg Will Be Pleased.
