Notes

  • A podcast is just people talking. Nothing magical.

  • Can use QuickTime to record.

  • Great opportunity to meet up with others - makes for a more fun show.

  • Since it's a rather new format, there's lots of room for new concepts and new ideas.

  • You don't need expensive recording studio. It's just recording conversations.

  • Basic audio editing is easy to learn. You can use free tools like GarageBand and Audacity.

  • Podcasts are not necessarily live. You can edit out the parts that go off topic.
