I’ve been thinking about podcasting for some time, but every time I look into it I’m overwhelmed by the choices of recording software and file options.  Mind you, I’m a computer geek from way back, so this shouldn’t be so difficult, but for some reason I’ve had a real road block.  It’s not even that I don’t want to hear my voice – given the choice between podcasting and vlogging, I’ll go with podcasting – it doesn’t require getting dressed or wearing lipstick.

I’ve now stumbled across a tutorial that makes the possibility of adding a podcast to my site doable. The site is aptly named, How to Podcast, “The definitive step-by-step guide on how to podcast without breaking the bank.”  This site has fabulous and easy to understand video tutorials that make podcasting simple.  So simple, I’m going to give it a try the next time I have a few minutes (after the taxes are done).   Once the initial set-up is done, podcasting will be simple.

The creator of the site, Jason Van Orden has a NPR radio host voice – smooth, soothing, and this is a nice refreshing change from most how-to videos that try to hard to be witty or to prove they’re smarter than the viewer. I enjoyed the tutorials and am using them in a project I’m working on for high school kids where I’m introducing them to podcasting as well.
