Podcasts have been around for the best part of two decades, but it seems as though they've only become a recognised part of the media fabric in the last few years, as kit becomes cheaper and people start to realise they they, too, could be part of the podcasting revolution. 

So while we might concentrate our Prime Days Deals coverage on the things we traditionally focus on – budget turntables, headphones or bluetooth speakers – it's worth taking a look at some of the packages that are out there to make your entry into the world of podcasting easy.

Because, let's face it: it seems that everyone has a podcast these days. And his wife. Their daughters, probably. And it's it not too late for you to join the fun. 

Pick a subject, prepare what you're going to talk about, perhaps get a friend involved, and the world's your literal oyster. Services like Buzzsprout (opens in new tab), Transistor (opens in new tab), PodBean, Simplecast, Captivate and Libsyn all make the web hosting side of it easy, so all you need to do is plug in, hit record, and start yapping.
