Looking into podcasting

A friend of mine asked me to look into podcasting and what would be involved in getting that to work.  This will be a quick post, which is part of testing things out.  As I currently understand you can pretty much run a podcast with WordPress without any extra plugins or anything.  This post will test this out.  Steps to get this post out are (not all done yet):

  1. Create start of post
    1. Place in Podcast, and Episode categories
  2. Record episode
  3. Save episode in supported format (looking at posting to iTunes)
  4. Upload episode to here
  5. Link media as both media, and as a link to the file
  6. Test to see if we can get an accepted RSS feed with the file included
  7. Test importing to iTunes

If all of that works out, that would be “most basic setup” but I also want to test how things work “better” with the recommended Podcast plugin, and see if that ends up being worth it.  I think maybe it does for some features, but if this works it may not be really that worthwhile for the existing setup.

That should be a playable link…  And:

Intro Podcast 01 is a link to the download.

Intro Podcast 01 a link to the attachment page.

OK, I have done steps 1-5.  I am OK with how that’s working so far.  Now to test 6 and 7…

    We are working on recording a full episode hopefully within the next day. The script for the episode has been written, but we don’t want to record it right now, and are going to take things to a point of having things be “quiet” for a good several hours.
