Neema Vedadi and I do a podcast called Freedom Feens (Available from LRN.fm or from http://www.freedomfeens.com/
Folks kept asking us questions about how we record and make it sound good (especially since Neema and I live in different states), so we wrote up a tutorial, with photos and screenshots: http://www.freedomfeens.com/how-we-record/
Not all of it would apply to everyone, and as Ian told me, "There are simpler ways you could do this." But Neema and I are audiophile nerds as well as liberty people. (And Ian talks about "simpler ways", but he lives in a room full of gear that turns me on so much that sometimes I almost want to mute the audio on the live video feed of FTL, ignore the people and just masturbate to the racks of gear and the RE-20 microphones.
But a lot in our primer would be of use to people trying to get into recording liberty media or music. And of course, the more of this stuff there is out there, the better.
If you're on a limited budget or not terribly tech savvy, I'd read the whole thing, but then just concentrate on the Zoom H2 recommendation and the parts at the end about the tech aspects of releasing a podcast.
Peace, guns and cats,
