As the writer of many Tips I had pondered (while walking the dog and listening to my iPod) the possibilities of a podcast, but it seemed to me that a podcast would be the least useful way of teaching people how to use their Mac. What I hadn’t considered though, was that you could listen while sitting at the computer and trying out the actions. That way you have built-in screenshots, or, more precisely, live action screens. And I guess you could stop the ‘tape’, rewind and listen again to any tricky points.
Listening to a 5 minute long Photoshop tip on brushes made me realize this could be a great resource to archive and listen to as needed.
I subscribed through iTunes, but the link above will get you what you need too.
