POST: Publishing an Episode

Follow the steps below to master the best practices for using POST's dynamic audio editor to create and publish episodes that will thrill your audience.


1. Navigate to the Audio tab to begin.

Selecting Audio Segments

2. Begin by selecting the segments to include in your episode. You can narrow your options by using the date and audio type filters or searching for a segment by name.

3. To add a segment to the episode, either hover over the segment and click the plus sign or drag it into the editor.

Uploading Audio

4. To upload audio, expand the Upload Library on the right side of the screen. Give your upload a name and select an audio type label before uploading the file.

Once uploaded, you can drag the audio segment into your episode.

Inserting Ad Markers

5. If you use a supported ad serve software, you can insert ad markers by clicking the "Targeted Ads" button and then dragging the placeholder into your desired position in the episode.

Editing Your Audio

6. To open the editor, click the play button on a segment.
