No special training
No complex hardware
No complex software
Little to no financial investment
Very little time
Scalable markets and listeners at little to no incremental cost
Permanentence of your recorded programming
24 hour self-help access for your subscribers

Does that sound too good to be true? It's not.

But unlike every 'broadcast' medium before it, podcasting offers almost no barrier to entry, which means you can focus your energy on thinking about how to benefit from your podcasting, not simply how to do it.
Let's get you up and running with your podcasting 'studio' in just a few steps.
Expect to spend a minimum of around $ 200 for basic hardware and software if you do not have these items already.
