Podcasting Explained


Imagine that your MP3 player magically filled with audio you could listen to at your leisure, from radio shows, online interviews and more. That's podcasting, so named because of the immense popularity of Apple's iPod. You can think of it as TiVo for radio, though that's a bit limiting, because you can do much more than time-shift radio.

It's similar to the way people are beginning to use RSS Aggregators to make their blog reading more efficient. Here's Doc Searls explaining DIY Radio with Podcasting.

Want to know how to do it yourself? Hugo Schotman has a blog describing how to podcast with Macintosh software. Others should emerge soon focused on PCs, which are not as adept at manipulating multimedia.

Jake Ludington explains Podcasting with Windows Media Player.

In person (digital recording hardware)
On the phone

Podcasting With Skype?

Podcast Torrents? (using BitTorrent?)

Receiving Podcasts?
Podcast Client Software?

Please be patient with the comments system. I'm running a very aggressive spam filter that now believes almost everything is spam. As a result your comment won't appear immediately. It requires a confirmation and a rebuild which usually happens a couple of times a day. Your comments are very important to me. Unfortunately Spam is wrecking the immediacy of comment systems.
