    • If you wish to add Description for your podcast, input the details in this field.
  5. Under Output Options, select from the Audio quality drop-down the audio quality you’d like to use for your podcast:
    • High (128 kbps)

    • Custom: Click the ellipsis button (...) to choose a quality setting within the range 16 kbps to 160 kbps
