Mike, Thanks for that advice. I have been promised many podcasts from iFriends. If they are not podcasts yet, I will make them that way (I have a mac for that easy part)... I will add the WordPress plugin this weekend! Thanks! Trevor----- Original Message ----- From: "Mike"

Sorry, been busy here and haven't responded. I am very much willing to help out. In all honesty creating a podcast is simple, you just need a microphone and a way to record. I personally use Castblaster ($50), but others use Audacity (free). Then you need a way to put out a RSS feed with enclosures. But my problem so far is there is two or three "podcasts" that are claiming to be podcasts that aren't. I will avoid calling these people out, but one group requires you to "register" for the podcast show,then the link to the file gets emailed to you (NOT a podcast by definition). Another allows you to watch video on the site, but no RSS feed with enclosures. Trevor's not one I am calling out. His is really easy to fix. Treavor, there is two options since you are using WordPress. 1) Install the PodPress plugin (just Google it). 2) On the custom fields add "enclosure" then the link to the file. If anyone needs help or wants help just email me at mike@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx If I can't answer it, I know serveral others that can.
