P.S. I easily get frustrated with tech. For whatever reason, I make a mess of things. But the Buzzsprout podcast platform has been super easy to create, upload and publish. And if "I" say it was easy, it's easy. The customer service is off the chain. I actually got emailed back the same day. Once, tech support went in to fix the problem and report to me that it's been taken care of. I'm a huge fan and that's the only reason I'm endorsing them.
