What does it mean to upload a podcast to the internet?  Who hosts these podcasts?  I am sorry if this is too rudimentary of a question…but this is the part that I am not getting.  Thanks.

Basically, since a podcast is not a streaming broadcast, it needs to be in mp3 form readily available for download…

So, we record our show, mix it down, etc, then move that mp3 file to a server, webhost, etc. Once this happens, the software such as ipodder goes out and brings that show right to your desktop….

If you have any more questions, hit me up…

THANK YOU for doing your homework. How refreshing to see an article about podcasting that covers the gamut in non technical language. Well written, well researched, and speaking for the podcasting community, we are thrilled to be written about on ipodlounge…

On a personal note, thanks so much for including my show alongside Rock and Roll Geek, Dawn And Drew, and Adam Curry….what an honor….

To bad this article wasn’t a podcast itself!

Thanks for a great article and the GodCast Network mention. I also have a podcast called “Behind the Scenes” that covers topics of interest for people who want to create their own podcast at http://bts.godcast.org

I would like to see an all inclusive how-to on Podcasting. I have tried and tried, but am unable to figure out the Podcast client s/w.

Keep up the great work!

Just got a chance to read the article and it was great.  Personally, I learned a lot about podcasting and the available podcast and sites I didn’t know before.  Thanks for the great informative article Alicia.  You did a great job.

Pod2Go was not listed in the mac section as program capable of downloading podcasts.

Thanks for the mention in the article, but you incorrectly linked my show, Insomnia Radio :-(
It points to www.insomniaradio.com, which is a far cry from what I’m doing…

The proper URL is http://hardcoreinsomniaradio.blogspot.com

Can you possibly insert a correction? I fear I have missed out on some traffic…

Thanks so much, greatly appreciated.

“it would be great if the ipodlounge reviewed some podcasting software. i would like to know more about each of the programs and their advantages.”

I agree! And since, as this wonderful article (and many others) mention, that Podcasting is an offshoot of blogging and uses some of the same tools, I think it would also be helpful to have a review of some of the better Blog hosting sites out there! I haven’t really been too interested in Blogging (text format), but this whole Podcasting thing has me excited!
