Podcast From Zero To Sixty In 10 Steps Or Less

I asked my friend Honest Guy to keep track of all the steps he had to go through to make his Last Honest Guy Relationship Podcast a reality.

He gave me these 10 steps that I think are really useful if anyone is thinking of doing an online radio show type thang. Enjoy.

  1. Read this podcast tutorial from start to finish ( it’s kinda long)
  2. Download the recommended software listed here
  3. Record your first episode. We used Skype and Call Recorder (for Mac) or SuperTinTin (for Windows)
  4. Sign up for an account on www.libsyn.com
  5. Edit the podcast. Remove ramblings, add music intro and outro, etc. We used Garage Band app for Mac.
  6. Download Mp3tag Software (windows only) to add podcast tags and Artwork to mp3 file. I believe you can do all this with Garage Band on a Mac.
  7. Followed this tutorial in order to submit to iTunes
  8. Before I submitted the podcast to iTunes I realized that the show info was a bit screwed up for some reason so I had to follow these instructions on Libsyn.com in order to get them right:
  9. Finalized submission to iTunes.
  10. Now waiting for iTunes’ approval.

I should add that Libsyn is a paid service offering storage, reliability and guarantied performance. You could host your podcasts on your own server (which is what I do on DIY Blogger) but that does come with it’s own set of limitations.

I hope this helps you put your own podcast together.

    Very cool, Dino. I’d like to start a podcast at some point in the future (not sure exactly about what, though), and this is awesome stuff to keep in mind. Thanks, buddy. Looking forward to seeing the interview here tomorrow!

      Let me know when you’re ready to do the podcast. Assuming your service provider allows you to store the .mp3 files (and you trust your SP’d reliability and speed), you can actually omit the hosting with Libsyn.

      My podcasts are fed to iTunes via Feedburner. So there is an economic alternative. Not that 7 bucks a month is a lot of money but still .. :-)

        I actually do not trust my service provider’s reliability and speed! I use GoDaddy for my hosting and… they kind of suck! I paid for a full year up front, so I’m stuck with them for another 6 or 8 months.
