How to set up a podcast

Share 

Setting up a podcast for your church is quick, easy, and free. You can broacast your sermons so that anyone with an Internet connection can hear it. Here are the steps.

  1. Convert the sermon to MP3. Pay attention to the various fields for author, etc. These can all be edited from within ITunes. You can also add a graphic from within ITunes. There are sites out there that will host your audio file for free. I have no idea why people do this kind of thing.

  2. Upload this file to the web. I use a free FTP program Filezilla. There are lots of free programs out there. Again, I don't know why people create this kind of stuff and give it away.

  3. Create a blog using www.blogger.com This is free. I don't know why. . . I think I said that already. There are other bloggers that will will likely work, it is just that I can't tell you how to use them. Wordpress, for example, does not have the link box mentioned below.

  4. Create an entry in the blog. The Title can be whatever you want. Under the title, there is a blank call LINK. In this box, fill in whatever the exact address of the MP3 file. A typical entry looks like this:

  1. Find the  FEED. This is the one place it gets tricky. After you create an entry, go to the blog  itself. If you were at the page above you would hit Publish Post, then View Blog. From there go to the very bottom of the blog and click on Posts Atom (right after subscribe to). A bunch of garble gook will appear on your screen. Don't panic. All you need is the URL. In my case it is: http://joshhuntaudio.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default Copy yours. I always use Ctrl-C to do this. it is too easy to make typing errors.

  2. Go to ITunes. Click on store. Click on podcasts. Click on Submit a podcast.  Paste the URL into that box. Again, don't try to type it out. Hit Ctrl-V. Hit submit.

  3. If all goes well, you are done. It takes a little while for it to register. Come back in a bit and do a search on the ITunes store to check it. Subscribe to your own podcast and listen to it. If all does not go well, look over this FAQ page: http://www.apple.com/itunes/podcasts/creatorfaq.html
