Fast forward a few years and I was curious to give it another shot, not only is it simpler, it's incredibly more affordable. Armed with a Samson Meteor USB studio microphone Samson Meteor Mic USB Studio Microphone (Cardioid)
a pair of Samson CH700 headphones Samson CH700 Closed-Back Studio Headphones and a copy of "Podcasting For Dummies" I dove in. The book is the effortless crash course I needed to avoid the pitfalls and actually begin creating Podcasts virtually immediately.
The book is packed with easy to read and quite often amusing to down right funny material that answerers your questions and get's you "live" faster than you may have ever imagined. The authors have made a concerted effort to take any mystery out of Podcasting by doing away with the technical jargon and it reads in a light , conversational, easy to follow way. The book is filled with tips and resources and even includes cheat sheet pages in the beginning for those who want to get right to it. I find I rely on these pages quite a bit for sources and recommendations.
One small tip that may help other readers is to make sure you brief yourself on the little icons used throughout this marvelous book. For instance, if something is particularly geeky there's a geeky icon printed by the passage your reading and so on. This adds more fun to the book making it a delightful read.
I've also found the book an invaluable guide to return to time and time again. I would suppose for those already familiar with many aspects of Podcasting might use the book exclusively as a reference guide. But regardless if you read from cover to cover or simply use this terrific book as a reference guide you're sure to find Podcasting For Dummies invaluable.
Other books have bored me to death and a few have and still remain abandoned in shelves and draws - not the case here. This is a wonderful read that most any Podcaster newbie or advanced will surely find themselves turning to again and again.
I put up with it to learn what I could, but when I got to the section on libel law I just had it with the book and put it down. I came to the conclusion that reading the book was a waste of time.
I am not going to buy any of these other "Dummies" books because I have to question what type of editorial control there is with this publisher.
after the first two chapters I HAD so much motivation to start my own podcast that within a week of reading this I had already recorded two interviews.
unfortunately there are some outdated links in the book, but that was not too bad.
This book is a great place to start for anyone with zero knowledge and wants to know the basics.
