Podcasting Pocket Guide: Tips & Tools for Podcasting Like a Pro
Sebastopol, CA--Never before has the term "download this" had more meaning than when referring to the latest and greatest podcast. Podcasting, a hybrid term that smashes the MP3-playing iPod into broadcasting, enables ordinary people to record podcasts of opinions, news coverage, editorials, reviews, and features, and post them on the Web. Podcasting makes broadcasters of people all around the world by making their recorded content available for anyone with access to the Internet. With thousands of free podcast offerings being posted daily, listeners need some help to sift through all of the "noise." This is where the Podcasting Pocket Guide (McElhearn, Giles, & Herrington, O’Reilly, US $9.95) steps in to provide some much needed guidance.
Small enough to fit in your pocket, this portable and affordable guide can help you gain access to opinions and ideas that you'd never find on the radio. Now you can find them all--unregulated and uncensored--on podcasts.
The Podcasting Pocket Guide is available exclusively at Borders through this holiday season and available at all stores in January 2006.
