How to Make a Podcast

I am surprised to say that creating a podcast is very simple. I was slightly concerned when I learned we had to create our own podcast because I have never even attempted at doing anything like it before. But in class we learned three simple steps to creating a podcast and even I was able to make a podcast!

Step #1: An audio file needs to be created. An easy way to do this is through Audacity, which is a free and simple program where you can create or edit an audio file. You can record a sound clip and add music or whatever background you want. After simply downloading the program to your computer you can immediately start recording audio clips.

Step #2: The audio file needs to be uploaded to the internet. The easiest way to do this is through Soundcloud, again it is free and very simple. After creating an account you can upload your file. Just make sure your audio file is in mp3 format and you’re good to go. Once uploaded you will get a link for your audio file and you can use that for the next step.

Step #3: Distribute your podcast. You can use all sorts of programs to do this such as or podomatic. You can also distribute your podcast through your personal blog.

These three easy steps make creating a podcast a simple and accessible task for everyone!
