Uploading Your Podcast to Soundcloud

After completing your podcast go to the Garageband menu bar and click on the Track option and select “Send Podcast to Itunes.”

A new menu should appear that will allow you to name the track, the artist name, composer name, and album name. Use the default setting and compress using “MP3 Encoder” (this will minimize the file size of your podcast without jeopardizing the overall quality) and for Audio setting make sure to chose “Spoken Podcast.” When you’re finished, click the share button at the bottom and the file will be compressed and transferred directly to your iTunes library.

After your podcast is finished transferring, the iTunes application should open automatically and begin playing. The next step is setting up a Soundcloud account which is self-explanatory and provides clear directions on how to create an account.

Click on the “Upload & Share Any Sound” option to upload your episode. This is were you name the title of the podcast, provide a short but detailed description of the podcast, upload an image for the Soundcloud display, and choose appropriate tags and genre. If you need to change these settings later, Soundcloud will allow you to do that (Don’t worry, I’ve done a dozen times).

Below, is what your finished uploaded podcast will appear as on Soundcloud.

In the Soundcloud audio player, there is a “Share” option that will bring up the following menu:

From here you may share your podcast on most social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, etc. or your personal blog on either WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger. To do this, all you need to do is press the icon of the site you want to share it on and a “shortcode” will appear.

Simply copy and paste the code into a new blog post, and the Soundcloud audio player will appear as it does on soundcloud.com on your blog post. Easy Peasy
