Publishing Once you have created your audio file and saved it, usually in mp3 format you need to upload it to a web server. Many sites on the Internet, including Blogger offer free podcast hosting services. Make sure you read the Terms of Service.
Publicizing Having created your podcast and uploaded it to make it available to potential users you need to provide a way for users to access your files. This may be as simple as providing a link from an existing webpage or more complex, such as creating an rss feed document which will allow users to subscribe to your podcast.
