My copy of How to Do Everything With Podcasting, by Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson of For Immediate Release fame, landed in my mailbox last week after an interminable wait. Neville and Shel have done an astounding job of demystifying podcasting. The nerve! After reading this book, you’ll know how to find podcasts, listen to them, produce them, and use them inside and outside the corporation.
We podcasters will no longer hold the keys to the kingdom now that Shel and Neville have unlocked this knowledge. How could they? How can I impress anyone with my ability to edit audio files or create ID3 tags? Now everyone will be able to do it. Sheesh. To make matters worse, Shel and Neville have built a companion Web site, so that they can keep the information in the book up to date.
Honestly, Shel and Neville, you did not disappoint. I knew the book would be an invaluable resource to podcasting newcomers and pros alike, and indeed it is. Congratulations!
