This will be short and to the point today. I have been reading, then skimming, then re-reading and absorbing some great information from two books. They are both different, and yet, they are much the same. They have great information for those that want to get a good start with their podcasting ideas and I can do nothing else but recommend that you get a copy of them. Even though I am basically directing this to those of you out there that are beginners, there is also a wealth of information in these two books for the advanced podcaster as well as the veteran.
I don’t say they are the end of the search, I merely suggest they are a good place to gain valuable information and they are written by people that are highly respected in the industry. The one, is the book I recommended for this month called, “Podcast Solutions” by Michael Geoghegan and Dan Klass, (see “This Month’s Book Review/Recommendation”.)
The second is called, “Podcasting — The Do It Yourself Guide” by Todd Cochrane of “www.geeknewscentral.com” fame. I have read much of them with interest (there is just too much information to say I have read every word of them) and I use them to reference my research for better ways of getting things done in Podcasting.
If someone or something could save you time and money wouldn’t that just make “sense”. These are two good books that can help you get a great start whether you just want to listen to Podcasts or if you want to make your own. They contain information on software, hardware and technique. I realize this industry is changing at a rapid pace, but these two books contain priceless information that will last a long time. They can help you get a strong start and bring you up to date on the birth of this industry and what it hopes to accomplish, as well as where it has been.
See ya next time . . .
