Podcasting is one of those things that can get lost in the mountain of equipment choices available out there. You can start a podcast for free with no worries, or drop $10k on equipment before you even record. This table is an attempt to sort through the myriad of choices available. We have broken it down into three columns, Individual or own cost, a middle of the road, and big spender or sponsored list. As always we are here to help, and if you want recommendations for your own set up just drop us an email or leave a comment.

Hosting is someone else holding your podcast on the internet so people can access it and download it. This saves you bandwidth, and most of the prices in the above hosting services will depend on how much bandwidth you need. Some have a limit on Uploading (the size of your podcast), others on downloads (how many people listen). Go with an Unlimited download and limited upload. That will save you $$.
|Show Notes||Workflowy Google Forms|
|Guides to Publishing on iTunes||BluBrry Guide iTunes Guide LibSyn Guide
Most hosting services will have a guide. They all go like this: 1. Make a podcast. 2. Upload to host. 3. Burn the feed to make it public (feedburner by google is free). Go to iTunes and apply.
We have had a few requests about our process for making an Episode for TOSAs Talking Tech. In this video we lift the veil and detail our magic making. This works for us, and while it may not be perfect for your situation, it can be a good place to start.
Here are some resources from some awesome people that talk some more about podcasting and how it applies to the class and your EdTech Life.
