Abstract: This study aims to shed light on the potentials of podcast as a new technology for learning English as a Foreign Language (EFL) by investigating its applicability and effectiveness as a tool for EFL students. A research framework was formulated by incorporating variables adapted from innovation diffusion theory and additional important variables including interaction and information literacy. The framework and four hypotheses were empirically tested by a survey on EFL students. Our research findings may be referenced by EFL students, educators and decision makers for the purpose of making favourable tactics to catch the revolutionary benefits offered by podcast.
