How do I make a podcast?

Get a USB microphone (the ATR2100 or the Samson Q2U are both good).

Connect your microphone to your computer, iPhone, Android, or tablet.

Record your audio. You can use free software like Garage Band (Mac) or Audacity (PC).

Export your recorded audio to MP3. For audio quality, choose 44100 Hz and 128 kb/s in your export settings.

Log in to your Transistor hosting account.

Upload the MP3 file you recorded, and then publish your episode.

Transistor will generate an RSS feed for your podcast.

Submit your podcast's RSS feed to Spotify and Apple Podcasts.

Now, every time you publish a new episode, listeners will automatically get it in their podcast player!
