I can see that PodcastBlaster is selling a $40 package that contains a book, an audio editor, some sound files, and a list of resources for podsafe music. In most cases I would call this package a blatant rip off and plunk this entry solely into my Snake Oil category, but it's not quite that bad. While the book, the list of web resources, and the audio editor (I'll bet 4 bazillion dollars that is the free Audacity editor they're offering) have no monetary value, the 100 sound clips do. I paid $6 to $10 a piece of each of the bumpers and intro/outros in my show so 100 sound clips for $40 isn't a bad deal. Yes, they're generic, but hey...it saves a lot of time that hunting down clips on the Internet would consume.
That's where it ends, though. Is that all they're doing? Selling a $40 package of mostly redaily available for free stuff? I guess it's the presence of the word "blaster" on the name that generated my expectation that they are a host or a service of some kind.
Let me put on my "if I was them" hat. I use Audacity. I've created 70+ shows with it and it works great. However, it's not geared for podcasters and if I had a choice, I wouldn't use it. I'm a Linux user, though, and I therefore don't have a choice. If I was a PodcastBlaster, I would put a really decent podcast-specific editor into the package. That, coupled with the sound clips, would be a little more credible. But that's just me.
