While Microsoft doesn't produce any podcast-specific tools, they sure want you to think of their product when you consider how to create your podcast.
As near as I can tell, they want you to record into your Pocket PC and then use Audacity to clean it up. Oh, and then upload it to Ourmedia or Blip.
Jeez guys, if you don't have any podcasting tools, then don't try to come off like you do.
Then blog entries like this would make sense.
