Note: Starting now, instead of a long script to read, we are going to make our podcast show notes, shorter, and easier to understand. If you have any future questions, please use our contact page.

Making a podcast is easier than most people believe, the problem is finding good interesting subject matter that people want to see, and continue seeing on a regular basis. This is the time to think about the future, what you do now will be the ground works of a possibly popular podcast. Make sure you pick a unique name and prepare yourself for some work. Below are a list of software and hardware you may need. You will also have to use itunes to submit your podcast to an incredibly large audience. You will also need hosting, a programmer to make the XML/RSS file, if your not totally sure of yourself, but most of all, have fun.

Make sure you view the source of my podcasts for a real world example of a live podcast. You will be able to submit your podcast to iTunes, feedburner, etc... once you've created a working rss with your first episode. If you have any questions about software, most software choices I outlined below come with help manuals, for extra help vist their web-sites or contact me.
