More Podcasting Technical Setup Comments

In doing some further research, I found Dave Slusher’s Recipe for Podcasting which matches pretty closely what I have done. I should also point out that Hugo Schotman (who references Dave’s entry) is also a pioneer of figuring this stuff out.

As a number of people have pointed out, none of this would be possible without the free software from Rogue Amoeba (and, in my case, their commercial Audio Hijack Pro which I now swear by) nor the incredibly useful SoundFlower and SoundFlowerBed.

I hope the folks at Rogue Amoeba are paying attention (I suspect they are). The market is 100% ripe for a new application which merges the functionality of all of these tools together into a master Podcasting recording and sequencing application. Imagine being able to pull all of the media elements, the OPML show notes information, and recording/mixing capabilities into a single application?

It was a lot of work and a lot of googling to cobble the system I have together. If it weren’t for the sites referenced above and in the previous post on this and the brief glimpses Adam Curry provides on his own setup in the Daily Source Code, I would still be casting about for how this is all done. If somebody makes the technical setup to Podcasting easy, the benefits would be amazing.

I’m just sayin’…
