How does Podcasting work?

I'm intrigued by Podcasting but I'm not quite sure what it is exactly and how it works. How much does it cost to subscribe to Podcasts?

check out Wikipediea. Podcasts are free to download, and easy to make. go to iTunes, click on podcasting, and subscribe (free) to one that sounds interesting. I suggest This Week in Tech

Podcasting

Can you have as many podcasts as you want? Are they updated if you pick one that is changing like news and stuff? Do you think this will always be free?

Steve Jobs has said he thinks it will always be free. The person providing the podcast pays for the bandwidth (think of it like an audio blog you listen to with iTunes instead of surfing over the Web).

I've already heard several with ads, though. I'm sure more ads are coming.
