What Is A Podcast?
So what exactly is a podcast? According to Wikipedia (a great source of constantly updated info), "'Podcasting' is a portmanteau word that combines the words 'broadcasting' and 'iPod.' The term can be misleading since neither podcasting nor listening to podcasts requires an iPod or any portable music player. Podcasting is distinct from other types of online media delivery because of its subscription model, which uses a feed (such as RSS or Atom) to deliver an enclosed file. Podcasting enables independent producers to create self-published, syndicated "radio shows," and gives broadcast radio programs a new distribution method."
Visit the Wikipedia Podcast Page for some very detailed info on the history of podcasting, as well as links to some wonderful sites, including podcast tutorials that show you how to create a podcast, and some podcast directory sites.

Media Artist Secrets With Franklin McMahon
A podcast for creative media artists involved in photography, animation, graphic design, music, broadcast, moviemaking and other multimedia, Media Artist Secrets provides inspiration, tells how to market your talents, fine-tune your vision, advance your skills and share your creations with the world.
Franklin McMahon has been writing about video production, photography, broadcast, music scoring, web technologies, design and the entertainment industry for over a decade in print for magazines such as Video Systems, DV, Publish, Res, Computer Graphics World and MovieMaker as well as on-line for sites like Microsoft.com. He is well versed in covering a wide range of topics and reports on the techniques and technology he uses every day, be it broadcast, photography, web, multimedia, music or graphic design.
Media Artist Secrets has won the Podcast Award for Best Business Podcast, and the program is the #1 Business program on Podcast Alley and has recently been nominated for a Podcast Award in the Business category.
"I am extremely passionate about helping people advance their creative careers and expand their audience of fans and clients" says Franklin McMahon. "One of the challenges to solve is that creative artists may be supremely talented, but not really focused on continued development, professional promotion and career growth. Creative artists are wired to create, that's what they do. This podcast helps them think of the big picture, dreaming big, getting the word out and making amazing things happen with their creative career path. I encourage everyone to spread the word and pass the info on the show to all the creative artists they know."
The podcast is supplemented by a blog at www.mediaartist.com which includes an archive of creative self-development articles, video tutorials on programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator as well as reviews of the latest creative desktop programs.
So how Photoshop-related is this podcast? Read our in-depth interview with Frank McMahon and you'll see that this is indeed a valuable resource for Photoshoppers.

If you thought Internet radio was cool, wait 'til you experience podcasting regular audio programs delivered via the Internet, which you can listen to when you want, where you want! Here to lead you into this brave, new world of mass audio blogging and quite possibly change your listening habits forever is a fun, fact-filled guide that shows you how to find, create, and distribute podcasts.
Author Bart Farkas recognizes that this concept is new to many and starts at the beginning, explaining what podcasting is, how it came into being, and how it promises to change the world.
From there, he covers the basics: podcast-grabbing software, MP3 players for listening to podcasts, the types of podcasts out there, and more.

Peachpit Press have an online sample chapter from the book titled "Creating A Podcast." From the intro:
- Now that you know what a podcast is, what's it's used for, and how it can affect your life, you may be inspired to create your very own podcast for distribution over the world's podwaves. Perhaps you would love to create a podcast but feel that the technology obstacles preclude you from ever doing so. Or perhaps you aren't worried about the technology but are unwilling to take the time to learn the ropes. Not to worry. Before you succumb to the fear of podcasting technology and crumple up in a fetal position while moaning gently about RSS feeds, have a look at this chapter; it'll change your point of view.
In this chapter, I take a look at the process of creating a podcast, from the nuts and bolts of recording techniques to the software that can help you edit and manipulate the podcast. I also include some tips and interviews with podcasting pioneers and aficionados whose hard-won experience will be to your benefit. After covering the equipment and the software needed for podcast creation, I walk you through the creation of a podcast from start to finish, using basic equipment and popular software.
