On today’s Tech Help for Churches, Podcasting: Creating Local Podcasts

The advantage of podcasts is that they’re not geographically locked, they’re time-shifted, and easily consumed.

For some churches, the international availability of a podcast might be it’s downfall. They are local and want to serve local people, so how do you create a podcast that draws local people? You do it by creating local podcasts.
