Comes with three web-based components: The Studio, The Editor, and The Publisher. All hosted in the cloud. Looks like a great setup for aspiring podcasters!

I've been testing this for a few months, and it's pretty great. Can't imagine going back to the whole weird mishmash of Skype, Call Recorder, and the other billion tools I needed to record and edit a podcast.

@justin what else have u been using?
@visavis_kid @justin Adobe Audition for editing, Feeder for the RSS feed, iTunes for metadata, and then I tried a bunch of different hosting services.
Podcast in a Box! I love it!
@dredurr Ooh, that's a neat way to put it.
I've played around with it a bit – takes care of a lot of the hurdles to starting your own podcast, so hopefully it'll open the gate for some more non-technical podcasters as well!
@adrianthomas Thanks! That's our thinking too. So far the majority of our testers have been technical, like us, but we've tried to build Cast to appeal to people who don't want to learn about bitrates and hosting and dynamic compression – anybody with something to say.
This looks really great. 1. What audio input would be ideal to record into Cast? 2. Does it integrate with phone calls- ie guests calling in?
@yozapli Any decent quality microphone will do the trick; I've got a nice condenser mic (an AT2035) plugged in to an Apogee Duet, but the Apogee One is a much cheaper solution. We don't yet support guests calling in over the phone, but it's something we're considering.
