How to create a podcast

Updated on Jan 10, 2024

Create your podcasts in six easy steps

Step 1 - Create an audio file

Select the "Files" option from the top panel. Click on the "New File" button. Select "Audio only", then select the language and dialect. Next, write the file's name and keep 'start with' as 'empty file'. Finally, hit submit.

Pro Tip: You can use a folder as a podcast show and files within it as its episodes for better organization.

Step 2 - Choose a narrator voice

Click on the scene to expand. Next, click on the default voice name "Sara" to choose a narrator voice for your podcast.

Tip: Voices marked with ⚡️icon support emotions like Happy, Sad, Angry, Cheerful and more.

Step 3 - Add your podcast content to the scene

Write, paste, or import your podcast content directly in the voiceover layer of the scene. Fliki will format it based on new lines in your pasted script.

Tip: Highlight/select the text in the section to add pauses, and change the speed or pitch of the voice.

Step 4 - Add background music

Add background music by clicking "Choose File" in the background audio layer. Adjust the music's volume and speed in the customization panel.

Step 5 - Preview and download your podcast

To listen to the scene, hover your mouse over the top right of the scene to find the play button. To listen to the entire script content, click the Play button in the bottom audio player. Click ‘Download‘, then ‘Start export‘ to download your podcast in mp3 format.

Step 6 - Host your podcast

For hosting and RSS feed, you can explore external platforms such as SoundCloud or Riverside.fm. These platforms offer robust hosting solutions and RSS feeds to distribute your podcast content to various podcast directories.

You can also publish the podcast on major stations like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Amazon Podcasts using the RSS link.
