Thank you for this screencast. Very interesting, even for me to decide not to change from a hosting of my podcast to a self-hosted podcast...
I´m also very interested in your audio-recording and editing workflow...

Hi Jan, Perhaps this can be something I could cover in a future screencast.

A very thorough screencast Don.
Like Jan above, made me think about the differences between using and self-hosting. I want to create a very small, hardly likely to change, low traffic website and am considering (because it's free more than anything else!). Anyone want to suggest pros and cons?


Hi Colin, posting on was not something I considered as I wanted to keep control of all aspects of the process. However, from what you are describing, it sounds like it could be a good solution for you.
