Podcasting Kit for SharePoint Set-up

I spent more than a few hours getting the Podcasting
Kit for SharePoint set-up last week.  As usual with any
thing interesting that is done with SharePoint the
deployment from one server environment to another is difficult at
best but I was rewarded with what appears to be
a pretty cool app from the nice folks at Microsoft’s
codeplex.  I am testing some scenarios out now
and will report back shortly but here is a nifty
