How to get started in podcasting
I wrote this post a while back. The content can still be relevant but the information I've linked to may not be available.
I don't know much about podcasting but Andy White from Summit Solutions gave an excellent presentation at the Sussex Geek Dinner (on Upcoming) last night. Andy covered the podcasting basics including what podcasting is (a series of audio broadcasts delivered via RSS or similar), what microphone to buy, how not to speak into the wrong side of the microphone (always useful to know), and how to use the free sound editor, Audacity.
Andy also described the use of iTunes to organise your podcasts and a host of other tips about sound editing, including sound compression, noise removal and normalisation techniques. It all looked remarkably easy.
