    Start Your Own Podcast Wiki

    My favorite line “People won’t want to listen to boring, run-on podcasts, or podcasts that don’t have anything interesting enough each show…” – which contradicts the popularity of Kevin Smith’s “SmodCast”!

    Alright, as I was about to post in my own blog, I am the least tech-savvy blogger nerd I know. But I am in the midst of trying to podcast, so here’s what I know so far.

    I used this site (it has some technical problems): and the Apple site, which is a little (okay a lot) over my head:

    1. Record your sermons. We do this with a CD burner that is part of our church’s sound system, but another pastor I know has an mp3 player/recorder that her son plugs into the sound board and records the sermon directly to mp3. Better quality.

    2. If it isn’t already, save the sermon as an mp3, preferably at 64 kb. For CD users like me, that means ripping the CD with CDex or the equivalent.

    3. Name your podcasts with the same name, and then either date or episode number. like: MCP_ep1 (Man Called Preach episode 1) or WillDeuel2008-06-19. Using iTunes or equivalent software, enter the artist info and such, so that others will know you made it.

    4. Upload the sermon to a server. I’m trying to use, but this is where it gets a bit hairy for me. I’m told you can do it directly through WordPress if you have the space upgrade.

    5. post the podcast episode as an entry in your blog with the link to the file on the server. make a new category (podcast or sermon) for use only for the podcast.

    6. create a feed url. yours would be something like You can then paste this into iTunes -> Advanced -> Subscribe to a Podcast to test the link.

    7. Create cover art at least 600×600 pixels.

    8. Create metadata. Yeah, I don’t know.

    9. Submit your url (and metadata?) to iTunes and wait for them to verify that you have a good podcast, which they may eventually put in their store and make searchable.

    10. advertise.

    you can see how far I’ve been able to get at my podcast attempt: If I learn more I’ll let you know, and I’d ask you to do the same!

    Good luck!
