How to Start a Podcast, Part 2: Hardware / Software


Podcasting can be daunting for a number of reasons.  Some people don’t have time to mix together, edit, and publish their podcasts.  Others simply hate hearing the sound of their own voice (I honestly fall into this category at times).  And still others are bound by technical or financial limits.  While I can’t help you with the first two reasons, I can say without a doubt that it is both extremely easy and (depending on how you do it) somewhat cheap to use what you currently have to get your podcast online.
