Why Podcast?

The answer to the above question is simple: Podcasting is so incredibly simple, especially compared with getting your own FCC license, that virtually anyone with a personal computer and an Internet connection can produce a show that could potentially be heard by tens of thousands of people. In the United States alone, where freedom of speech is set forth as one of the founding pillars of society, one does not have to take a large leap of faith to imagine that the podwaves are filling with interesting, offensive, humorous, and often inane chatter.

You may ask, ”Who is podcasting?” That question can be answered very simply: Everyone is podcasting, Figure 1.3 shows Bob Goyetche podcasting out of his home in Deux-Montagnes, Quebec. By everyone, I mean people from all geographic locations and all walks of life. If the Internet ushered in a revolution in information dissemination, podcasting has done the same for the audio format. Podcasting is themetaphorical saw that cuts through the chains of radio, be it satellite radio or the old-fashioned AM/FM brand.
