U-Cast Podcast Kit. I love the way Ion take really simple things, like..er…a microphone and headphones, and bung them together into a marketing box to help us poor Luddites understand their use better. Anyhoo, here it is, £59.99 worth of USB mic and headphones with a stand (important that) and some free Audacity audio editing software to give it the final polish. No polish, madam, not Polish.
Now, Podcasting is no longer the domain of the broadcasters and newspapers. Armed with a bit of high technology – in the form of a high quality microphone (complete with desktop stand), a pair of headphones, some nifty editing software and a subscription to a hosting provider, you’re all set to let the world hear your innermost thoughts, rants and raves, direct from the bowels of your PC. And may God help us all.
