Why Call Them Podcasts?

I was reading a comment on Nektros.com where Chris from purplepig.net said:

“So why do they call them Podcasts? I know its all related to iPod’s but nowadays iPod’s have nothing to do with them”

This brings up a interesting point.I have recrded a coupe of podcasts now, and I listen to a few also. However, I do not listen to blog podcasts on my iPod. When I come across a podcast, I want to hear it right now. The only podcast I listen to on my iPod is Dave Ramsey.

Come to think of it, I don’t know of anybody who listens to blog podcasts on their iPod!

Maybe they should call them something else, like blogcast!
