What is a Cloudcast and how is it different from a Podcast?

Cloudcasts explained

A Cloudcast is an umbrella term used for any extended audio show that is hosted in the "cloud", in other words hosted somewhere centrally on the Internet rather than on your local hard-drive. Therefore, unlike Podcasts, Cloudcasts can be enjoyed via streaming without any waiting required. 

Cloudcasts are easy to create and upload - no fiddly RSS and XML to worry about. And because they're stored in the cloud, there is a lot more interesting data to play with - who's listening to what, where in the world they are, how long they listen for and so on. This allows us to do a much better job recommending other Cloudcasts to you.
