The rise of podcasts can be traced to the diversity of content offerings, but it can also be attributed to the relative ease of starting one: you don’t need a fancy recording studio or any degree or certification to get started, and there are few distribution hurdles to overcome.

The 13″ model is super thin and lightweight (just over three pounds), making it easy to tote around on location. (Source: www.rollingstone.com)
