Re: What to do next?
- I strongly agree with Blasterbot's advice (below).
The most important thing you need to worry about is content, what
you're going to say and how you're going to say it, not stuff, gadgets
or hosting. Find options and gear that are good enough to get you
started, not commit or bankrupt you or give you bragging material to
wave at other podcasters. It's all about the listeners and the content.
I have found _Podcast Solutions_ by Geoghegan and Klass to be the
absolute best startup guide out there and I see that a second edition
just came out in November (I don't know the authors or profit from
this. I really like the book).
I think everything else you should be reading for your podcast
preparation should be content - not process - related.
