You have some files on your hard drive, you have some old CD's or cassettes that helped people back in the day, and helped people or entertained them. 

What do you need?

If you want to add some additional information to the content, you will need a microphone like a Samson Q2U. 

You also need some artwork that meets these specs:

1400x1400px (minimum)
3000x3000px (maximum)
Under 500kb
Use rGB color space
Be a JPG, JPEG, or a PNG file

if you have a budget check out www.podcastbranding.co if you ave less of a budget check out Kapa99

Then you need a media host. I've been a libsyn customer since 2005. I became a Libsyn employee in 2016. You can use the coupon sopfree at www.libsyn.com 

How Much Space Do I Need?

You need to know how often you will publish and how long the episodes will be. 

If you want to do a weekly show that is 10 minutes long that is 40 minutes a month. 

A stereo podcast (128 kbps ) takes up roughly 1 M per minute. A mono file (64 kbps) takes up roughly .5

A 10-minute episode once a week is 40 minutes a month. That would be 40M a month in stereo and 20 megs a month in mono.
