For getting started or taking the next step... Good choice!

  • Oct 9, 2005
The podcasting titles are starting to show up fast and furious. I recently received a copy of O'Reilly's Podcasting Hacks - Tips & Tools for Blogging Out Loud by Jack D. Herrington. It's a very good choice for both the rank novice as well as the person who wants to take their podcasting to the next level...

Contents: Tuning into Podcasts; Starting Out; Quality Sound; Formats; Interviewing; Blogging; Publicity; Basic Editing; Advanced Audio; On the Go; Videoblogging; Glossary; Index

Some of the Hacks titles cover a wide range of tips and hints on a subject, and you end up picking and choosing what works for you. There are a few that seem to go a step beyond and provide a pretty complete coverage of how to get started with something, as well as how to improve your skills if you've already started. Podcasting Hacks seems to fall nicely into that second category. There is some coverage on how to get going with listening to podcasts, like #8 - Listening to Podcasts on Your PDA and #9 - Podcatching with Your PlayStation Portable. There's even a number of Perl hacks you can use to do some "roll your own" development. But the book really shines when you get into the main areas of how to produce a podcast. You'll learn how to pick the right microphone (#13) for your needs, how to set up a home studio (#61), and even how to produce your podcasts in surround sound (#16). Add in a number of recommendations of hardware and software, and you've got a valuable guide to becoming the next voice to be heard...

Unless you're already an Adam Curry in the podcasting world, this is a book worth reading. You'll either get off to a good start, or you'll take your podcasting to the next level. Either way, your audience will thank you...
