I heard of "podcast", but I always thought it was a product of Apple because of the word "pod".

I didn't know it was free of charge, so I never ever tried it before until this topic pops up.

Up until yesterday, I usually listened to YouTube video to accompany me for sleep. But Youtube has too many annoying advertisements now.

Thanks to this topic, now I can switch to podcast programs for getting me a good night's sleep.
