Podcasting has come of age—it’s finally got its own trade show.

This past weekend, I joined Playlist Reviews Editor Dan Frakes and Senior Editor Chris Breen in Ontario, Calif., for the inaugural Portable Media Expo and Podcast Conference.

The conference featured sessions on creating and delivering digital content—that’s fancy talk for “podcasting”—and drew podcasters from around the country. I spoke to several—including Dawn Miceli and Drew Domkus of “Dawn and Drew” fame—about how they got into podcasting, why they do it, and the gear they use to deliver their podcasts to the masses. Maybe it will inspire you to dive into making a podcast of your own.
