Once you have your recordings edited and listened to your episode at least once, you should publish your episode. To do so, go to your episode dashboard where you will see a button that says “Publish” on the top right of your screen. 

 

Now you will be prompted to name your episode and add a description. If your podcast is in episode format, go ahead and name the episode what you feel is best fit, and at the end, add a vertical bar on your keyboard and the episode number. So it’s “Name | Episode 1.” However, if your podcast is not in episodes, simply name the episode any suitable name. 

 

Under the customizable settings, you can see if you want to number your season or episode. If you would like to do that, go ahead. If not, simply skip this optional step. Hit “Publish now,” and there you have it! Congratulations! You are now a published podcaster! Before you check out your episode, you must know that it takes a little bit of time before your episode will show up in various directories. This can range from an hour to a day. Nevertheless, congratulations on making it this far. 

WINDOWS

 

Make sure that you only publish your episode once you are finished with your editing and have completed at least one complete listen to your episode. Once you do so, you should find the export option that is part of a drop down under file. 

 

Once you click the export option, you should be prompted to a box with various options to export your file.

 

Save As: This will be the name of your audio file that will show up on your side. Make sure the name allows you to remember what the recording is without having to directly open it.

 

Tags: You can leave this empty.

 

Where: This is where the file will be stored. For the ease of retrieval and uploading, I recommend storing new files on your desktop and then later organizing it into a file. 

 

File type: For podcasting purposes, both .wav and .mp3 are both good. However, we recommend .mp3 because of its smaller size for faster downloading/uploading speeds. 

 

Quality: This is an advanced option that can alter the quality and size of your file. We recommend anywhere in between 170-210kbps because we find that at that size, your audio will still come out clearly and be a manageable size. 

 

Now hit OK. Once you do so, your metadata will pop-up. You shouldn’t worry about this. We recommend clearing it out before hitting OK again. Once you have this done, go ahead and head to Anchor.fm.

 

Now that you are logged in, go ahead and click on “New Episode” if you haven’t done so already. On the right-hand box, right below the save episode, you will find an option to upload audio files. Click on the arrow and upload the audio file. If your file is large, this will take some time. For files that are 30 minutes or longer, expect to wait 5 minutes or more. 

 

After the file loads, go ahead and click on save episode. Now you will be prompted to name your episode and add a description. If your podcast is in episode format, go ahead and name the episode what you feel is best fit, and at the end, add a vertical bar on your keyboard and the episode number. So it’s “Name | Episode 1.” However, if your podcast is not in episodes, simply name the episode any suitable name. 

 

In the description box, just write out what the episode is about. Once you are ready, go ahead and click publish now. Congratulations! You are now a published podcaster! Before you check out your episode, you must know that it takes a little bit of time before your episode will show up in various directories. This can range from an hour to a day. Nevertheless, congratulations on making it this far. 

MACBOOK

 

As always, after editing your podcast, we always recommend listening through your episode at least one time to confirm all the recordings fall into the right place. Once you are ready, go ahead and click on “Share” where you’ll find the option to export song to disk. 

 

When you click on this option, you’ll find multiple fields to fill out. 

 

Save As: This will be the name of your audio file that will show up on your side. Make sure the name allows you to remember what the recording is without having to directly open it.

Format: Both .wav and .mp3 are fine, but we recommend .mp3 for its small size and fast download/upload speed. 

 

Quality: Both 192 kBit/s and 256 kBit/s are fine, but for podcasts that are over 10 minutes, we recommend 192 kBit/s so the file is easier to upload/download. 

 

Click export. You should now see a bunch of loading bars. Once these are all completed, they will automatically disappear, and you should be able to find your episode where you have it saved. Go ahead and head to Anchor.fm.

 

Now that you are logged in, go ahead and click on “New Episode” if you haven’t done so already. On the right-hand box, right below the save episode, you will find an option to upload audio files.
