For the class I have chosen a book on podcasting. It’s Podcast Solutions, The Complete Guide to Podcasting, by Michael W. Geoghagan and Dan Klass. Amazon link.

It addresses listening to podcasts, planning a podcast, the tools associated with podcasting, recording a podcast, putting together the podcast, preparing the file, and placing it on a server.

Geoghagan, by the way, is an early podcaster and an example of someone who started podcasting and caught the attention of mainstream business (Disney), which hired him to produce Mickey’s podcasts.
