So you want to start a podcast?

Podcast in Audacity

Don't worry. It's not as complicated as it looks.

Hello and welcome to Podcasting for Beginners! Since you're visiting this Web site, you must have an active interest in creating a podcast of your own. I was much the same way just a few short months ago, but I had no idea how to undertake such a seemingly tech-heavy, complicated process. But don't worry -- it's not that hard, and you don't have to own thousands of dollars worth of equipment, nor do you have to be intricately familiar with coding feeds to start, record, produce and upload your podcast for all the world to hear.

On this site, you can learn the basics of starting a podcast on a low -- perhaps even non-existant -- budget. I did so with the alligatorSports Podcast in February 2009 despite having no experience with podcasting -- other than downloading and listening to them, of course -- and no equipment other than a MacBook.
