How to publish your podcast audio
Once you've created your audio, it's time to upload it to a hosting provider and generate your podcast feed. Every podcast needs:
A webserver to host MP3 files,
A way to create new episodes, and add show notes,
A way to publish new episodes, and update the podcast's RSS feed,
And a way to generate a valid RSS feed.
This is where a podcast hosting company comes in.
