Hipcast – podcasting on the cheap and easy

Hipcast logoI’ve had about 6 podcast interviews over the last 10 months.  I’ve asked my podcasting expert friends how to go about having my own podcasts.  The answers are always overwhelming because I’m not a gadgety, geeky type and I don’t want to have to spend a lot of time on it.

That’s why I was really excited to learn how CM Russell pumps out podcasts so quickly and easily.  I know you can have flashier, funner podcasts (with music at the front or back or whatever) but for someone dry and boring like me this is all I need: Hipcast (their blog – outdated).

Again, I haven’t signed up for hipcast just yet – I’m not ready to make a podcasting committment.  But its cheap – 5 bucks a month on their basic plan (get 2 months free if you pay for a year).  As far as I understand its dumb-proof – just make a phone call into the hipcast system, push some buttons to tell the system what you want to do and you’ll end up with a recording and the code you need to post it on your blog or site.

I like it and this is likely how I’ll do it if/when I start.
