There are podcasting hints and tips from Apple here.
The technology used in podcasting is not complex or difficult to use. This same technology can change and simplify the way you communicate, with family-friends-business. Easy and simpler than email and lots of fun.
No need to write lengthy email. A voice recording is simpler and friendly to people who may have reading and writing difficulties . The young grand kids will love to hear your voice. It is not difficult to add a picture or short video. Your voice may have more impact at a business level, than email. Communication is more friendly and personal.
Simply use Dropbox, as your storage-transfer medium and it all simply works.
A simple setup for voice recording. Easy to carry around and works with all iDevices. Save the Audio/Video file to your Dropbox account and provide a link to it via email, to all persons you want listen/watch. Your voice is a much better conveyer of mood and feeling, than email.
Add a setup like this to your "road warrior" kit. Also great for the budding musician (use a iPad), or as a podcasting "starter kit", using a iPod Touch.
*Internet connectivity is required*
If you have a iDevice with a lightening connector, you will need the Apple 30 pin converter.
The mic stand and holder are not necessary. Mic stand holders are also available for iPads. RAM can be your best friend. Check out Ebay and Amazon.
Cheap microphones give rubbish audio. Minimum spend for a Mic of $50.00 will get a reasonable one. The really good gear comes from RODE and Apogee.
*Many USB microphones DO NOT work with an iDevice via theApple USB adapter. XLR to USB converters may not work as well. The XLR mic will need to provide its own phantom power, or you will need an adapter. A technical bit. Feel free to ignore.*
Podcasting gear in all its forms, is all about audio recording. Podcasting is the area to explore, for all types of audio recording setups.
Good to excellent recordings can be made with your iPhone-iPad-iPod touch
