How to Setup Media on Libsyn Through Your own RSS Feed

A popular media host for podcasters is Libsyn. They can host your podcast, set you up with some mobile apps and give you stats on your show.

How to Make a Portable Sound Proof Vocal Box for Mobile Podcast

I am seeing a lot of podcasters with mobile rigs lately. This is great – you have to get our your podcast but your environment changes.

Only Podcast hosting companies.  Earlier today news spread of the company that sued Apple back in 2011 is at it again. They have issued lawsuits to ACE Broadcasting and HowStuffWorks.com. While they received $8 million from Apple for a patent dispute, can they really go after a podcast?
