The Creation of a Podcast and Change

I've been learning how to create a podcast in Audacity. Along with that, I've been learning how to incorporate sound/music, in order that a podcast could be a type of "radio show" if you chose.

The technical side of podcasting is a little confusing. I've been working with PodOmatic and FeedBurner. I needed to use FeedBurner as Blogger has a different RSS feed type than most of the blogging software out there.

My hope is to have teachers learn how to podcast, feel comfortable in uploading their own podcasts, and understand the process involved in subscribing to one. Once I get comfortable in the technical side, I plan to create user-friendly tutorials.

Below is a video player in which you can listen to the authors recite their winning entries.
