A couple of good Mobile Broadband images I discovered:

My temporary podcasting kit is proving to be very appealing in regards to convenience and portability. Microphone, mini-disc recorder and a laptop running Audacity. A 15 min podcast takes about 30 minutes to produce by doing this (leaving out research and preparation). 10 minutes recording (songs is added later), 10 minutes post-production and encoding the MP3, 10 minutes uploading, publishing to blog and updating the feed (which I do by hand).
Because I am currently without broadband in the house, I do the upload and posting from a public wifi hotspot.
What’s missing? Not much. I can’t do phone meetings with this gear. When I had my full studio setup, I pre-owneded a PC running Skype and an external noise mixer. (I probably need to buy some kind of telephone hybrid now that I no longer have broadband.) Pre-owneding a mixer enabled me to blend various other noises (such as music) in live which conserves the editing later on – but in my case, since the podcast is so brief, it’s actually quicker to import a 5 minute MP3 into Audacity than it is to sit there while it plays in genuine time!
