Sing it with me:


It’s not a Podcast if it’s proprietary.

If I can’t subscribe how I want then it’s not for me.

Podcasts are open, like by definition.

To publish a Podcast you don’t need permission.

Netcasts are open, podcasts aren’t. The name came from a proprietary platform’s ability to subscribe to audio. To be honest, I’d opt to keep these separate names to highlight this huge difference.
