a microphone is a very handy piece of equipment to have, you don't have to have one, sometimes people just use the sound from the camera. a microphone picks up the sound of your voice and makes it sound even more clear understandable, you can tell if people use a microphone or not, there is quite a big difference in quality.
what software is needed for podcasting ?
a decent recording software to use is audacity, it is a free audio editor and also a multi platform.
3DS Max- a decemt package for animation software, especially 3D, this ads an extra feature to an audio podcast and can make a rather boring podcast entertaining. this is not suitable for a person who doesn't want to use animation

podcasts i have subscribed to
These are the podcasts i have subscribed to. I enjoyed all of these podcasts because I am interested in all of the subjects. I didn't find them boring and they were very well made and entertaining.
My podcast was made with a group, we made it about the history of Liverpool FC, we chose to do this because certain members of the group know a lot about the subject. It was fun to make and edit.
