Setting up a Podcast
Podcasting in HTML websites and templates
Podcasts are live streamed, or pre-recorded, sound distributed across the Internet usually through a website. All you need to start your own Podcast is a microphone hooked to a computer, usually through a USB port and podcasting software.
Most podcasts are not done by professional broadcasters, even though large organizations from NPR
to National Geographic
are offering them. For the most benefit from a Podcast your audio show should be streamed live and be promoted as an event.
