is it possible to record and upload a podcast  using only a playbook? What programs do I need to record audio, and convert it to mp3 format?

There is an app called "Voice Record" which records your voce as a .wav file.  It lets you forward the recording via a "share" function to other apps or as an attachment to an e-mail.  You can also locate the file via the Ghost Commander file manager app.


There are lots of web converters that can change it to a .mp3 file.


Not having experience with podcasts, I leave it to others to provide help on that topic.

There is an app available that converts several file formats to many different formats. I don't recall the name but it was discussed here about a week ago. Use the search function at the top of the page, use broad search terms. It may turn up.
