In general, the entry fee for the podcasting is low. All one needs is a decent quality microphone to ensure quality recording. Of course, one can get fancy, with audio editing software, sound effects, and such, but ultimately if the content is interesting/useful one can build a loyal audience. Think Craig’s list Vs. the-fancy-shmancy-flash-site.
So why bother with podcasting? Taking the blogging analogy ( www.insurgentjg.com ) further, the podcasters are a pioneering bunch. The main stream talk radio shows have not got into the act just yet, just like the main stream media does not use the blogging format(as much as it should)—leaving the field open for podcasting enthusiasts. While a lot of content may not be polished, some of us are looking for “Reality” version of things. The anonymous blogger writing from her basement can(and sometimes does) command a loyal readership that would make the editor of New York Times blanch. Similarly, the podcaster can have an audience rivaling political commentators and MTV DJ’s. It’s all about the value the podcaster provides to the audience. The meritocracy of internet ensures that only the cream rises to the top.

2. Generate an RSS feed containing a link to the audio file in the enclosure field of a RSS 2.0 compliant feed.
