"Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac" Covers GarageBand 3 -- Podcasting took 2005 by storm, but as many people quickly realized, it's harder than it sounds. That's why we released "Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac" last year and why Apple, in a move that wasn't surprising, added a slew of podcasting-related features to GarageBand 3. But as anyone who has used Apple's iLife applications knows, their documentation is sparse, which makes us particularly pleased that Andy Affleck has updated "Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac" to cover using GarageBand 2 or 3 to make a podcast. The ebook still covers Rogue Amoeba's Audio Hijack Pro, of course (and comes with a coupon worth $3 off the program), and adds coverage of SoundStudio 3. Also new in this update is information about adding chapters to a podcast. The update is free to those who purchased the 1.0 version; just click the Check for Updates button on the first page of your copy of the ebook to download the update. For anyone who hasn't yet scratched the podcasting itch, "Take Control of Podcasting on the Mac" costs only $10 and will help you make the most of that shiny new copy of GarageBand 3.
