ODEO is a free podcast + hosting site that is really easy to use. Even if you have never done a podcast before, they have an easy walk-through to help you.
It is very easy to create an account. A couple of clicks and your podcast is created. All you need is a microphone to do the recording. ODEO will also host the podcast for you.
Now there are a few things of interest:
- you have your own page where you can import in your PEEPS and manage them
- you can drop podcasts into your iTunes and create an RSS feed
- there are many different podcasts previously created that you can browse and listen to
The down-side of things:
- there are ads on the page
- some of the topics to browse are questionable (but if you keep everyone on task you should have a great time with this online tool)
