Podcasting so easy even a 5yr old can do it!
Podbean www.podbean.com Free place to try your podcasting skills. You may need to upgrade your account if you really get into this! It is CHEAP if you do need to upgrade. SO easy!
Audacity http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows This FREE download will allow you to begin creating and editing podcasts. Here is another link to a resource on how to use Audacity. This PDF is from Council Rock School and was produced for teacher training by Larry Kling, 2006.
Logitech - www.logitech.com You will need to look at a nice headset and microphone. I found a USB mic/headset I liked from Logitech but feel free to try whatever you can borrow first. Until you are committed to the podcasting do not invest too much in equipment!
iTunes - http://www.apple.com/itunes/ To download iTunes for Free. You will need to convert your files and compress your audio files to make uploading to podbean or any podcasting server more effective. This will save time in uploading and space so you can keep your site free for as long as possible. The www.apple.com website had a nice help feature that will teach you how to use the advanced tools for file compression. Then you could add your podcast to iTunes for others to subscribe to also! http://www.apple.com/itunes/store/podcaststechspecs.html Enjoy!
