Podcasting for Goobers

I recently had a lively discussion at work, at a meeting of our "digital content interest group", that boiled down to one of the attendees saying "Podcasting is complicated", and me saying "No, podcasting is easy". It then degenerated into not terribly productive "Is so!"-"Is not!" loop.

Well, perhaps I should put my money where my mouth is, and just do a bloody podcast, and in the process, demonstrate how hard or easy it is, and perhaps help others who might be considering it find their way into the wonderful world of podcasting--even if, like me, you are a goober.
