I have some feverish work to do this week on an upcoming presentation on, of all things, podcasting. (A previous post titled Sick of Podcasting was titled as a joke- I am not “sick” or “tired” of the concept, it was my own inertia of having done the same presentation twice in a week, and actually it was fun- new disclaimer coming on my titles, “not to be read at face value”).
My focus on this session is “Podcasting On the Cheap”- the free/low/no coast ways of at least getting your feet wet. I’ve got my ideas lined up, but could use some help from anyone out there on sharing the sites available for posting the media files one can lump in a podcast feed. This is one of the missing or less clear links- where to hang the media files. I’ve always had my own servers available for stashing my media, but that is not the common option.
Others that pop up form some googling- anyone use these? I am looking for more than file storage places; they must have a publicly addressable URL so pop into an RSS feed. They cannot be ones where the media expires nor ones with low storage caps (like ones that offer 5 Mb) nor ones that offer “3 months free”
So where can you reliably hang some media for free? As a special request, how about using Odeo to tell me your thoughts:
