Podcasting Hardware Needs

Question: What hardware is required for classroom podcasting?

The IT Guy says:
The hardware requirements for podcasting are a computer with an Internet connection and a functional computer microphone. School districts will likely want to host podcast files on in-house servers, however, so ftp access to a server capable of hosting Website files is also needed.

If large numbers of students and other community members subscribe to a local podcast feed, demands on the server can increase significantly. In this case, it can be a good idea to set up a separate podcasting server dedicated to podcast files. It may be a good idea to also throttle the available bandwidth available for podcast downloads, if those downloads affect bandwidth available for the main district Website or other mission-critical websites.
