@joeligj12 It's the same, but the word podcast is Apples name for it. It's a portmanteau of the words iPod and broadcast. While audiocast is a neutral word for it.
@hund oh, so this is more of a "I dont like apple so I wont use their terms" kinda thing?
I already knew podcast was a combination of those words, I just wanted to see if there is reason you chose not to use it xD
I simply think podcast is so common, that trying to change it makes no sense
@joeligj12 I don't like Apple, but I'm not some butthurt kid either. I can be mature about it. :)
I prefer to use neutral terms for everything, wether I support and like whoever came up with the term or not. I rarely ever use the term "toot", even though I obviously like Mastodon a lot. :)
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
