Podcasting using Mediasite

Have you ever dreamed of having your own radio show? Are you a recording artist hoping to have your songs heard by the masses? Decades ago, you would have needed a lot of connections -- or a fortune -- to get heard.

Podcasts can be found for almost anything. Radio shows, do it yourself projects, special interest groups, religious sermons, comedy sketches, cartoons, and just about anything else can be found including of course Educational podcasts.

Once a podcast is found, it can be subscribed to like a magazine or newspaper and then downloaded. Once it is downloaded, it can be stored on a player to be listened to, including services like Spotify, or iTunes, or PocketCasts.

Podcasting has become so popular that many people who write for magazines or report news on television have also been putting out their own podcasts.

Log on to one of several podcast sites on the Web, and you can download content ranging from music to philosophy to sports. Podcasting combines the freedom of blogging with digital audio technology to create an almost endless supply of content. 

­Podcasting is a free service that allows Internet users to pull audio files, using the Mediasite Service you can host your own podcast, and the Mediasite team will handle setting your service up, and making it available on iTunes and Spotify and others.
