      I don't think it'll be particularly challenging, and doesn't really require
      that much bandwidth if you're "pod"casting voice only. Podcasting is really
      webcasting which has already been done using RealMedia and WindowsMedia
      tools for a while; the only thing unique about podcasting is that it's being
      done with an iPod.

      Andy says that his five-minute podcast is 5Mb in size, which seems very big
      if it was voice-only (which, by the sounds of it, it was). There must be a
      setting somewhere that reduces the amount of bandwidth used and therefore
      reduces the filesize that's produced. Yes, the quality will be reduced, but
      you don't need to stream at 64kbps in full stereo for a voice-only webcast
