John Furrier invited me on his PodTech show last week. We discussed quite a few things including Open Source and RSS.
One thing I found very interesting is the gear John used. His setup consisted of an iRiver, a laptop, two mics and a mixing board. Minus the cost of the laptop, he was able to record and produce the show with approximately $500 worth of equipment. At that price point, I continue to believe that Podcasting will continue to grow at a torrid pace. (Having Apple add Podcast support in iTunes certainly won't hurt)
