What an exciting day for podcasting! First I hear about iTunes, and then Garageband.com. I visited the podcasting section of the GarageBand.com website recently and logged into my personal account. I was moderately impressed with some of the features that GarageBand.com was offering, but pretty much it just looked like it always has.
They did make it a little bit easier to create playlists but I guess what they added was the ability to distribute the files with enclosures in an RSS feed. They also note that you can upload audio files and soon, call in audio messages, to attach to your musical playlist to create a podcast.
If anyone gives GarageBand a good trial, please post some comments or send emails to [email protected]
