What is podcasting?
podcasting is a digital audio or video file or recording, usually part of a themed series, that can be downloaded from a website to a media player or computer etc. Here I am going to start of my first tack by talking about what hardware you need for podcasting? and what software you need for podcasting. By reading this I will help you onto your first steps to knowing all you need to know about podcasting.
The most important thing I believe that you need to know about podcasting is the definition of audio. If you're just looking to experiment with podcasting these first few step will interest you. The question you need to ask yourself is...
What’s a podcast without sound? The only piece of required hardware to start a podcast is, of course, a microphone.
Whatever laptop or desktop you’re working from most likely has a built-in microphone, whether you know it or not. While using your built-in microphone is very cost effective and definitely do-able, it’s really not the best option.
