SEOUL, March 20 (Yonhap) -- North Korea made its debut as a podcast series distributer on Wednesday as the country jumped into the popular media platform in a bid to propagate its socialist system.

The North's propaganda Wed site Uriminzokkiri said in its posting on Wednesday that 10 podcast feeds are now downloadable. The series produced by the North's multimedia propaganda unit include episodes titled "the time will prove" and "look at the determination and willpower of North Korea."

The production group consists of about 100 multimedia experts and is responsible for producing a variety of audio and video propaganda material as well as computer software.

The country also stepped into the social network sphere, and has spread feeds of propaganda messages or North Korean news through Facebook, Twitter and Youtube since August 2010.
