A podcast is a series of audio or video digital media files which is distributed over the Internet by syndicated download, through Web feeds, to portable media players and personal computers.
Though the same content may also be made available by direct download or streaming, a podcast is distinguished from most other digital media formats by its ability to be syndicated, subscribed to, and downloaded automatically when new content is added.
Long distance interview (via skype) Recording and mixing of skype calls is a tricky process as the person on the other end needs to be able to hear you but not hear themselves back through your connection. We use the mix minus technique through our mixer – make sure your mixer can handle this before you buy.
a mix-minus is a particular setup of a mixing console, such that the output to a certain device contains everything except the input from that device. This prevents echoes or feedback from reverberating or howling and squealing through the broadcast or sound reinforcement system. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia
Vodcasting is very similar except you are editing and uploading video.
Many people use Youtube an easy means of uploading content and syndicating it. However quality is not good.
