I think that podcasting is one of the best and most personal forms of new media. All you need is a microphone and a simple sound recording program to create your own studio to produce your own music and send it somewhere on the web. It is the best interest of the podcaster if he wants to get his podcast to the public to pay for storage online. Once this is done the creator of the podcast should post links to the podcast as well. What is even more interesting to me are "streaming" podcasts on the web that is a form of broadcasting or internet radio. The consumer-producer of the podcast had control over what goes into the podcast or live stream radio, yet the consumer-producer has no control over the host, payment policies, advertising rates, or revenue.
