O’Reilly today announced the release of “Podcasting Hacks,” (US$24.95) by Jack Herrington. “Both aspiring and experienced podcasters will learn the mechanics of recording and posting podcasts to the Internet, tips for managing bandwidth, professional techniques for improving their podcasting voices, tools for audio editing (and using audio effects and filters effectively), and seasoned advice for building a home studio. There are hacks for recording on the go (such as from a car or an event), building an MP3zine, and adding more dimension to podcasts by creating videos in addition to sound (videoblogging). There’s even a section on the legal dos and don’ts of using copyrighted music and of grabbing audio from another source for use on a podcast.”
