How to Best Create a Simple Podcast

After I did a short interview with a social studies expert for SJVCSS, a professional organization for social studies teachers, I wanted a way to put it on the website as more than an MP3 or audio file.

Audio File

To create the file I simply recorded an interview with an expert in civic education on my iPhone. It would have been much easier to record a video, but that requires another degree of expertise in interviewing that I did not want to face yet.

Has anyone had success with sharing their posts with Google + Communities? People do it all the time. It should be obvious.

It isn’t to me.

I came across this article online Google + Communities Beginner’s Guide.
