  • WHAT IS A PODCAST? Your own online "radio" station where listeners can

    download or stream your episodes

    Can be audio or video (audio is more easily consumed on the go)

    Anyone can subscribe from their mobile phones or desktop

    Subscribers get notified when you publish a new episode

  • TWO COMPONENTS OF A PODCAST? Part 1: Podcast Hosting

    a place to store your MP3 files (not a good idea to use your website for hosting these large files)

    usually include stats on how many times your episodes have been listened to
