THE FOLLOWING AUDIO HAS BEEN CORRECTED: Christopher Lydon, not Dave Lydon, is known as the first voice to be released as a downloadable MP3 on an RSS feed in 2003.

Everyone has a story about how they discovered podcasts and on Saturday, Sept. 30, you can celebrate your love of podcasts on International Podcast Day.

How can you celebrate? Send an email or a Tweet to your favorite podcast to let them know you enjoy their work. Find new podcasts to listen to. Tell your friends and family about podcasts they might enjoy and, more importantly, show them how to listen.

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Podcasts.
