This lecture is an activity as you learn how to subscribe and download a podcast. The supplemental paperwork is a worksheet to help you think through why you selected those podcasts and what you liked/disliked
THE BEST (and by that I mean ONLY) way you should be podcasting is by using a self-hosted version of Wordpress (free). I use a company called host gator (www.schoolofpodcasting.com/hosting ) and have used them for close to 20 years. You don't have to purchase a year in advance to get a good price (around $8 a month). I recommend the baby plan as it gives you room to grow.
I do NOT recommend you use ANY "web host" for your media files. We will talk about this more in the next section.
The hosting I use is Host Gator or Blue Host I prefer Host Gator as they do not require you to order a year of hosting to get a good price (but if you do it's even better). I also mention when choosing a name to check to make sure the domain name is available. You can go to www.schoolofpodcasting.com/domaincheck to use a tool from Godaddy.
To understand web hosting and domain names, please see the "Understanding Hosting" Supplemental Information
