overview

If you thought Internet radio was cool, wait 'til you experience podcasting--regular audio programs delivered via the Internet, which you can listen to when you want, where you want! Here to lead you into this brave, new world of mass audio blogging--and quite possibly change your listening habits forever--is a fun, fact-filled guide that shows you how to find, create, and distribute podcasts. Author Bart Farkas recognizes that this concept is new to many and starts at the beginning, explaining what podcasting is, how it came into being, and how it promises to change the world. From there, he covers the basics: podcast-grabbing software, MP3 players for listening to podcasts, the types of podcasts out there, and more. Knowing that you won't be satisfied just listening to podcasts, Bart shows you how to create podcasts as well, covering the hardware and software you'll need as well as the distribution options and legal issues that confront you. Interviews with real-world podcasting masters are highlighted throughout.
