Podcasting is as simple as recording your voice and sharing that recording with millions of potential listeners online. Put in those terms, podcasting sounds easy enough, until you examine all interim steps required to get from recording to distribution. What kind of microphone are you going record with? What software do you use to create a podcast? How do you edit an audio file? How do people subscribe to your podcast? Where do you put the file on the Web? How do you attract listeners to your podcast? Can you make money podcasting? These are just a few questions making the simple act of recording your voice and sharing it online a little more complicated.
