I found a near-perfect solution in the Web-based [Audioblog] service ($5 a month). To post a recording, you just plug in the microphone, click a few buttons, and choose the blog in which you want the file to appear. Your blog then displays a flash-based slider bar that readers can use to play the file. Audioblog also lets you create an RSS or XML feed on the spot, as well as upload your favorite songs. (But be careful: Posting copyrighted music on your blog could make you fresh meat for the rottweilers at the RIAA.)
You can also record voice entries by phone. Simply dial the site's moblog number, enter your PIN and your blog's four-digit ID, and then start talking. You can even capture video clips with a Webcam and podcast them as easily as audio. I posted to my blog several videos of me crooning Elvis Costello tunes. (When my kids are being really bad, I force them to watch.)
However, Audioblog provides no tools for editing audio or for stitching different recordings together into a show. For that, I used Mixmeister's [Propaganda] ($50), which let me drag and drop separate recordings and add transitions between them, including the truly obnoxious "talk over the first six bars of the song" trick beloved by drive-time DJs. But publishing in Propaganda is a pain--you need to set up an FTP server, and it wouldn't work with my free Blogger account. So far, I've yet to find a tool that makes both editing audio files and podcasting them easy.
