The audio programs known as "Podcasts" are catching on with people who own iPods or other digital-music players, according to a survey released on Sunday by the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
More than 22 million American adults own iPods or MP3 players and 29% of them have downloaded podcasts from the Web so that they could listen to audio files at a time of their choosing. That amounts to more than 6 million adults who have tried this new feature that allows internet “broadcasts” to be downloaded onto their portable listening device.
The report is available for download in PDF format .
