Artwork Add 2 relevant pictures that are appropriately licensed for you to use (e.g Flickr).
Audio Audio quality should be clear and easy to hear. Volume levels should enhance the message of the podcast.
Share
After creating the podcast, post the final mp3 either on your own web site, Audioboo, or Blogger. If hosting the file on your own server, create a way for others to subscribe to your file using Feedburner or a similar technology. If hosting the file on Blogger, be sure to tag and index the posts in a way that a podcast aggregator like iTunes can subscribe to just the audio files. Show notes next to your podcast for those who want to read the text of your podcast.
