Step 1: Record a video in Screencast-o-matic.
- I use the desktop version of Screencast-o-matic which costs $18/year. But you could use the free online version if you stay under 15 minutes per recording.
- I record a video because I like to post it on my YouTube channel for those who prefer the YouTube option over using a podcast player app.
Step 2: Import video into Garage Band.
- I import the video into Garage Band where I then extract the audio to create an MP3.
Step 3: Upload audio to Anchor.fm
- I use Anchor to host my podcast because they make it super easy to have the podcast distributed to all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts and Google Play.
