Guide Review - Review: "Podcasting Hacks-Tips and Tools for Blogging Out Loud"
The author gives out great snippets of information, like on page 168 in Podcasting Hack #28 when he talks about segment ideas for a sports podcast (interviews, debates, countdowns, etc.). Another good podcasting hack I appreciated was Hack #34, "Record Telephone Interviews" (tip:keep it legal by asking for consent.). I was intrigued by the possibilities of podcasting explored in this book - there's just so much you could do with this relatively new medium, and the author of "Podcasting Hacks" sure does a good job of conveying his own excitement and expertise in the podcasting field.
