In today’s digital age, anyone with an Internet connection, a computer, and some basic audio equipment can produce a podcast and make it available to the worldwide online community. Podcasting is a great way to market your business, share your ideas and passions, educate and train others or simply just have fun. The audience for podcast content—on every topic imaginable—currently numbers in the millions.
In fact, Podcasting News recently reported that the online video audience in the U.S. is now 134 million (representing 3⁄4 of all U.S. Internet users), with the average viewer watching 68 videos online a month, or more than two per day!
