Invasion of the Podcast People

What I don’t understand is why people have started calling mp3s of interviews/music mixes/etc. podcasts. Why the new term? I don’t feel particularly hip and snappy using it. I feel like a freakin’ yuppie wannabe. And podcasts make me think of iPods. I think they look sort of silly. Especially those “earbuds.”

Anyways, why call it a podcast when not everyone has an iPod? And why do most amateur podcasts sound like the equivalent of a deer caught in the headlights?
