Your professional site should include several pages, using images, colors, and structure effectively.

Podcasts are simply audio files (mp3) with voiced narration. Many are entertaining, exploratory, and informative. The aesthetic and production values of radio have some influence. But often, depending on audience, a more casual ethos is achieved in successful “do-it-yourself” productions. Audio quality is still important, as is some degree of editing, and content/structure planning.

The source recordings are in WAV format and the final is produced as mp3.
