“You should start a podcast,” a friend said last year. I didn’t want to do it, because I was afraid of taking on the burden of one more project. And I thought podcasting was too difficult. Boy, was I wrong.

Podcasting is easy. In fact, when I committed to producing and publishing the Hack Learning podcast, I created the show, added two episodes and published to iTunes in, believe it or not, less than 60 minutes! Less than two months later, Hack Learning had 28 episodes and more than 7,000 listeners!

How to produce and publish a podcast in minutes

While there are many tools to create your audio and platforms to host it, this post is about producing and publishing a podcast using Spreaker. (Disclaimer: this is not a paid endorsement for Spreaker.)

Spreaker is an all-in-one podcast production and publication tool. You can create a profile and multiple shows directly on the Spreaker website or on the mobile app.

Create shows via web or mobile platforms

Once your show is created, which takes about five minutes, you can use the web-based console, pictured above, or the desktop/mobile Spreaker Studio, pictured below, to record a live broadcast or an offline show, which can be uploaded to Spreaker or another host site later.

With Spreaker’s settings tab, you can easily connect social networks for automatic sharing of new episodes. You can program email notifications and create an RSS feed, which can be added to iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud and other podcast channels.
