Boise Weekly mentions ePodcast Producer
Especially with signs of advanced interest emerging to foreshadow future costs of podcast downloads, such as Industrial Audio Software (IAS) announcing their ePodcast Producer on March 2. The ePodcast Producer is the world's first completely integrated software package combining recording, editing, RSS feed creation, and FTP uploading, according to IAS.
Essentially, if you want to produce your own podcasting show, follow these three steps and with a little patience you'll be rivaling Rockwell's Daily Download. First, plug a USB headset with earphone and microphone into your computer. Then install the free Audacity MP3 recorder for Windows, Mac, or Linux to make a recording and save it as an MP3 file. Finally, upload the MP3 file to your Web site or blog and follow the instructions at ipodder.org to create an RSS feed on your site. If that seems too effortless an explanation or you crave the single interface and "technical superiority" of an ePodcast Producer, visit http://www.industrialaudiosoftware.com/ instead to place an order, and bow your head in shame for a failed podcast-it-yourself attempt.

Here's what they say about us:
Hey everyone, it's Just Pete and NASA Janet of the Illinoise! podcast ( http://www.illinoise.net/ ).
We're excited to be a part of ePodcast Producer at the ground floor. I (Just Pete) had been discouraged with current offerings in recording, editing and uploading podcasts. There's been much discussion in the podcasting circles about an easier way to do podcasting. Pioneers like Adam Curry of the Daily Source code have been banging their heads about how to make podcasting easier for the average person. Unfortunately, many of the suggested solutions have included talking into a phone and having it upload the voice as a podcast. Yuck.
And that's why I immediately liked the ePodcast Producer concept. It's first and foremost a professional audio recording application from a company who's done this for 20+ years. It's easy and intuitive, and I really think it will be instrumental in helping to revolutionize podcasting as a viable medium.
But don't take my word for it! Check out the free demo and see for yourself.
You can also check out Illinoise! and see how we're able to implement this great software into our own podcast.
P.S. We're inherently Mac people and were glad to hear there's a Mac version coming early this summer! But we couldn't wait ... we got the PC version up and running on Virtual PC. Worked like a charm
