Backstage: MangaCast

What is podcasting? The word "podcast" came from Apple's "iPod" and the word "broadcasting." Like RSS, podcasting is a way of distributing multimedia files over the internet through syndication, listening to podcast is like reading news or articles, except you listen to an audio file in MP3 format. People can listen to the podcast online, or download it into their favorite MP3 player.

So what happens when we mix podcasting with manga? We get MangaCast of course! Created on July 21st, 2005, MangaCast has since become the premier manga podcasting site on the internet.

In this special issue, Backstage presents MangaCast in its fullest glory, exploring its history, features, a behind-the-scene talk with various 'Cast members, and even a how-to-make-your-own-podcast guide.
