    If I wanted to start a podcast, how would I go about doing so? Where would I host my podcast and what program could I use? Is garageband sufficient?

    Ya hey, im a podcaster. I use adobe audition, i find that it works the best. If you want to go cheap though, use Audacity (just google it), which many podcasters say work just as fine. But Audacity can do much more. So if your doing podcasting as a hobby, stick with Audacity. (I got audition from my dad)

    Host on, they are reliable, and have great storage. My friend uses garageband, and he says it works just fine, so use that instead of Audacity. Check me out at

    I despise GarageBand for podcast work- much prefer Audition. It's a bit pricey, though.

    You can use any host. If you have some experience with rss and such, you can choose to just have a standard web-host and do the work yourself, like I did. It's good to learn these things. Otherwise, there are solutions that will generate your RSS for you and such.

    Also- it's PC only, but CastBlaster is nearing a full release and I hear it's pretty good.

    You can also check out Systm, they have a video all about how to make a podcast. That site is from Kevin Rose (the diggnation podcast and TWiT)

    I greatly prefer Audition, but as far I know it's a PC-only program, right? When Adobe bought Cool Edit, I thought they would port it over to the Mac, but to my understanding that never happened. Any plans to?

    Are you all running it with virtual PC? If so, what sort of success have you had?

    audition is good

    virtual pc slows everything down...but if it works for u :)

    anyway, audition is pricey, but if u want to get serious, its the way to go. so try podcasting, and if u get lots of listeners (im still working on that :eek: ), get audition.

    I still think that garageband works great.
