Once you've created your show, you can upload your episodes.

1. Click on “My Shows & Episodes” from the side menu on the left. If the table is empty, you'll need to create a show first.

2. Locate the show you wish to add an episode for and click on the "Episodes" button.

3. If you have no episodes for the show yet, you will be greeted with the following screen. Click on the "Create an Episode" button.

If you do have a show already, click "Create Episode" button at the top of the screen.

4. Upload your episode audio (or video, for flash briefings) by drag-and-dropping it into the upload area, or selecting a file using your file browser. Once the upload begins, you will be able to fill in your episode's information.

  • Episode Media File: Your episode files must be MP3, M4A, OGG, MP4 files, WAV or WMA files. They also need to be under 200MB and we recommend you use a bitrate of 128kbps. If you provide a video file for a flash briefing, the audio track will be used if no separate audio file is provided.
