Podcasts (audio podcasts, in particular) can be produced quickly, and they don’t require expensive equipment. In fact, using open source software like Audactiy, you can create high quality podcasts with materials you have laying around the house.

The podcast audio is a little spotty, and for that I apologize. It’s tough normalizing audio in a new environment. One should always record sample audio whenever recording in a new location. Let my failures be a lesson!
