Podcasting: The Do It Yourself Guide by Todd Cochrane answers the questions regarding what 
PodCasting is and why it exists.  And his main message is;  Have fun!  
Internet Radio   err   PodCasting has been around awhile, but PodCasting per se, has really been 
popularized within the last 6 months (this is 2005) or so. VODCasting is just beginning and if 
you use iTunes and click on the Podcasting Directory and do a search on TV, a few VodCasting 
sites will appear. Todd doesn't go there, but we did in our Blog. Now back to the book; 
Todd Cochrane is a  veteran  PodCaster with his Geek News Central PodCast. What he does 
with this book is show what PodCasting is, how to participate and the devilish little details and 
equipment needed to rival the moneyed media systems. So far, the PodCasting networks are not 
regulated, so just about anything goes. Even Apple finally has begun to add  Explicit  to a few 
PodCast streams and lots of banned verbiage is the norm on a lot of  Shows .  iTunes isn't the 
only way to access these and I gave a few links in the July issue of macCompanion in the Letter 
from the CEO titled,  PodCasting Marvels . That was before I got this book.
