The final amazing thing about podcasts which I’ve just had to keep for part 3 of this podcasting trilogy is that podcasts are free! That’s right. And I don’t mean free as in you don’t have to pay for them (even though they are) I mean the podcasting megasphere isn’t held down in grey shackles by any corporation or business.
