{from a co-worker}

Can you share some information on the actual logistics for podcasting?

– How do we record someone giving a elevator pitch?
– How are podcasts hosted?
– How are podcasts distributed?
– How do people access podcasts?
– Are they delivered via RSS feed?

{my answer}

Excellent Questions. I know of Podcasting, but haven’t done it. Yet 🙂
– We can use any type of audio recording software. I hear that Audio Recorder ( works well on a PC to record conversations via Skype.
– Or we could use something like Audacity to record a conversation via a computer:
– Or we could use podomatic to record from computer directly to a podcast server. It’ll do the rest.
– The client needs a good microphone to record, I’d suggest a Logitech USB Headset as they’ve been quite nice. Lee does have one too if you’d like to see one.
– The more professional they want to go the more they need to spend on recording. We can do a decent job for almost free, but some companies like to do professional recording as it sounds more professional. Then you’d need to find a studio to record in.
– Podcasts are usually hosed on the client’s blog. If they don’t have one, then we could set one up.
– Podcasts are distributed via RSS just like blog posts. We can also submit them to iTunes and Yahoo for free.
– People can access them via iTunes, Yahoo, download them directly or one of the many podscast subscription software that’ll monitor the RSS feed for new podcasts.
– Here is an idea how it works : – May not be the best tutorial but it may help.

To understand Podcasts, you must relate to one. Podcasting Server
