Picture of How to Podcast
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!

Picture of 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.

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.

Here is a template for the RSS file (code is not mine):

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0">

<channel>

<title>My Program</title>
<link>http://www.mywebsite.com/myaudio.mp3</link>
<description>My first podcast</description>
<language>en-us</language>
<copyright>2005</copyright>
<lastBuildDate>Todays Date*</lastBuildDate>

<title>Todays Radio Show - Monday</title>
<description>Here is my Monday podcast. Hope you like it.</description>

</item>
</channel>
</rss>
(* 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)

Just fill in the relevant fields with your information.

Here is a site that will make the file for you: http://podcast.redevelopments.co.uk/

Either way, validate it here:http://rss.scripting.com/

And here is my How to podcast instructable. It may be helpful too: http://www.instructables.com/id/How_to_podcast_1/

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 :(

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 this link on how to make a compatible podcast to publish to iTunes.

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 :)
