Seeing as I couldn't find any instructables on this, I decided to start an instructable on how to make your own podcast and get it discovered by the world!

Step 1: Come up with an idea!

The first step in creating a podcast is... coming up with an idea for the podcast! You should probably talk about something that you're interested in. Whatever you choose, make sure you have a lot to say about whatever topic you choose.
 btw hes podcasting about the mail time song...lol

I doubt you would know this but I have a question. Me and my computer teacher are working on a website and using strictly HTML. The only thing we are having trouble with is RSS. Since we aren't using a premade template like Blogger, we have no idea how to do RSS with HTML. Any help?
I can help.<br/><br/>Here is a template for the RSS file (code is not mine):<br/><br/>&lt;?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot;?&gt; <br/>&lt;rss version=&quot;2.0&quot;&gt;<br/><br/>&lt;channel&gt;<br/><br/>&lt;title&gt;My Program&lt;/title&gt;<br/>&lt;link&gt;http://www.mywebsite.com/myaudio.mp3&lt;/link&gt;<br/>&lt;description&gt;My first podcast&lt;/description&gt;<br/>&lt;language&gt;en-us&lt;/language&gt;<br/>&lt;copyright&gt;2005&lt;/copyright&gt;<br/>&lt;lastBuildDate&gt;Todays Date*&lt;/lastBuildDate&gt;<br/>&lt;webMaster&gt;youremail@whatever.com&lt;/webMaster&gt;<br/>&lt;ttl&gt;1&lt;/ttl&gt;<br/>&lt;item&gt;<br/><br/>&lt;title&gt;Todays Radio Show - Monday&lt;/title&gt;<br/>&lt;description&gt;Here is my Monday podcast. Hope you like it.&lt;/description&gt;<br/>&lt;pubDate&gt;Wed, 23 Aug 2006 00:56:00 GMT&lt;/pubDate&gt;*<br/>&lt;enclosure url=&quot;http://www.mywebsite.com/myaudio.mp3&quot; length=&quot;4834743&quot; type=&quot;audio/mpeg&quot;/&gt;<br/>&lt;/item&gt;<br/>&lt;/channel&gt;<br/>&lt;/rss&gt;<br/>(* Make sure you express the date in the format of: Day:Date:Month:Year: hh:mm:ss . Also, you have to tell what timezone you are in, relative to GMT)<br/><br/>Just fill in the relevant fields with your information.<br/><br/>Here is a site that will make the file for you: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://podcast.redevelopments.co.uk/">http://podcast.redevelopments.co.uk/</a><br/><br/>Either way, validate it here:http://rss.scripting.com/<br/><br/>And here is my How to podcast instructable. It may be helpful too: <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_podcast_1/">http://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_podcast_1/</a><br/>
sorry man, no clue. I'd surf the web and maybe send an email to a podcast that does that. Good luck, and if you figure it out, write an instructable! Sorry I couldn't help :(
P.S. Nickelodeon, please don't sue me!
Good instructable, but I would go more in-depth with publishing to iTunes, because you need special tags in your feed for iTunes to pick up on. I would also include <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.apple.com/itunes/store/podcaststechspecs.html">this link</a> on how to make a compatible podcast to publish to iTunes.<br/>
That's true, but that's if you are creating your own XML feed. WordPress and FeedBurner do a lot of that for you, however I don't know about Blogger. I did add the link however :)
